Don't confuse turkey tail for this mushroom which has the nickname hen of the woods.
Maitake can grow in big clusters the size of a basketball. It can be used for high blood pressure, cholesterol, cancer, and diabetes.
Unlike the mushrooms on the list so far, this one you can actually eat.
ven though it grows on trees, it's not a woody shelf mushroom. It has a good texture and mild flavor. So it's good for you medicinally, plus it tastes great!
