Grows under Ponderosa and Lodgepole pine trees.
This is another edible Russula. On Rampart Range they actively fruit by the thousands in early August. They can be very abundant under Ponderosa and Lodgepole pine trees. They stain grey when cut or scratched in the context of the stalk. Older specimens will be grey inside the stalk when cut. They must be found when very young because the bugs get to them rather quickly.
