But the fact that the most expensive mushroom – a white truffle, remains unchanged. As for the price, it is still impossible to determine the exact price per kilogram of this delicacy, because almost every big mushroom sold at auction. Sometimes it is not good for either buyers or product. For example, bought for 28,000 pounds in 2004 mushroom weighing 850 grams … just rotten.
