Sulphur shelf, Sulphur polypore, Chicken mushroom, Chicken fungus, Crab of the woods (Eng.), Swawelrakswam (Afr.)
A fan-shaped edible mushroom species that grows on the bark of living oak trees and Eucalyptus species. It has a slight lemony flavour when cooked and is similar in taste and texture to chicken breast, hence its common name. It is easily identified by its overlapping, fleshy tiers that are bright orange-yellow in colour.
