Most Americans are familiar with the mushrooms they eat on a pizza or in a salad. But beyond that, most people know very little about this popular fungus. More than 3,000 different types of mushrooms are grown around the world. Some mushrooms are less than an inch high, while others are more than 15 inches tall. They have strange names like shiitake, Portobello and Black Trumpet. Until World War II, most mushrooms were grown in Asia, where they were used in soups and vegetable dishes.
