The thin stem reduces waste, since it is the round button cap that is harvested and valued the most. The caps of the mushrooms in the button stage are usually 1-3 inches in diameter, but if left to mature and open the caps can reach a size of 5-8 inches in diameter.Consumers enjoy eating this mushroom due to the many ways it can be prepared.
