Typical of the woods of Basilicata and Pomarico, so named because they grow near wild thistles (cardo in Italian).

This mushroom is typical of the Murgia. It is wild and it is called cardoncello because it normally grows under thistle bushes (thistle is cardo in italian). They are very good, I reccomend them and I wouldnt translate the name because it is so typical that it is impossible to do so.

It also seems that many food factories grow these mushrooms, therefore the term "wild" might go depending on the quality of the brand.
