“It emerged from a bush in an old brick kiln near my house,” Truong Anh Dao said.
“Initially, I thought it was a conical hat, but upon going closer, I realized surprisingly that it was huge mushroom.”
She pulled it by its roots and brought it home.
It is 50 cm tall, weighs 3.5 kg, and at its broadest, measures more than 40 cm across.
They also said it was the largest mushroom they have ever seen.
Last October Truong Chin Binh of central Phu Yen Province found a large mushroom, but it was only 15 cm wide. A normal mushroom is only several centimeters across.
