puff ball

Giant puffballs can grow to be 10 to 70 cm (3.9 to 27.6 inches) in diameter, They have been known to grow up to a diameter of 150 cm (59 inches) and weights of 20 kilograms (44 lb). The inside of mature Giant puffballs is greenish brown, The large white mushrooms are edible when young and still white inside although when I have tried them in the past they are fairly bland in flavour.
