King Bolete is very variable in the color and surface of its cap as well as in its general shape. It fruited for the first time at the end of July, but these fruitbodies are very parasitized; it is generally better to wait for the fructification of the 3rd week of September to pick fruitbodies of quality; this last fructification is much more abundant. On the market, this bolete is sold under the names of Summer King Bolete and Autumn King Bolete.
