KRABI: Krabi locals are cashing in on a wild cash crop of mushrooms which only appear for about three months a year between October and early December. 

The fungus found in palm plantations in Krabi at this time of year is locally known as the ‘June’ mushroom and fetches between 250 and 300 baht per kilogram.

Residents of Klongtom Sub District have been picking the mushrooms as a source of food for themselves as well as income, earning between 500 and 1,000 baht a day. Some of the pickers have managed to collect up to 10kg in a single day, amounting to a 3,500 baht daily income.

Given the stupidity of some, if the Thais are eating these expensive delicacies rather than selling them and eating regular bought food, then there needs to be some re-education :)
