Re: puff balls

Any pictures would help! Are they pure white? Size? They can grow as big as basketballs. The inside should be pure white also when sliced opened, if so they're good to eat; once we have positively ID them as puffballs.

I don't have any pictures but they're pure white and some are bigger than a softball but smaller than a soccer ball.

Re: puff balls

If they are at least this size they are the Giant Puffballs.. make sure they are white inside... Also if you spray the ground with insect spray or herbascides I wouldn't eat them then..
