It’s morel mushroom season in the Midwest, and in Indiana, one teenager discovered a particularly giant specimen of the tasty treats.

Jayden Graber, 13, found a “ginormous mushroom” near the town of Linton, reports the Indiana Department of Natural Resource’s District 7. An average morel might have a cap about 2 inches wide and 4 inches tall; this one grew much, much bigger.

Usually, morels are snarfed up by deer or other animals before they grow so large, but they can grow as large was one foot. As large as this one is, it can be eaten like any other delicious spring morel.
