Agaricus bisporus

Summary 2

Agaricus bisporus is an edible basidiomycete mushroom native to grasslands in Europe and North America. It has two color states while immature—white and brown—both of which have various names. When mature, it is known as portobello mushroom, often shortened to just portobello (also spelled portabello or portabella ). Smaller sized portobello mushrooms may be called portobellini or portabellini.
