Originating from cow pastures in East Plant City, Florida, this variety was collected and named Purple Mystic by “Blackdove” for the purple ring that develops around the cap of this mushroom in the wild.
The cultivator believes they are the most potent of the cubensis varieties.
Purple Mystic was distributed to members of the mycology community where it was collectively stabilized and domesticated.
Quickly gaining in popularity, this fast-fruiting and prolific variety display large brown caps that fade to cream with maturity, and long, uniform stems. As veils break and spores drop the entire canopy takes on a purple hue.
