This article is about an older version of DF.

Plump helmets are mushrooms that can be grown by dwarves for food, and are perhaps the most widely popular of the six underground crops. They are edible raw, but can also be cooked in a kitchen or brewed into dwarven wine, placing them among the most versatile of crops. Because they are also very fast-growing (taking only 25 days to mature) and can grow the whole year 'round, they are the staple food crop of many fortresses, which enjoy multiple harvests per season.

Keep in mind that cooking plants destroys their seeds, or in this case their spawn*. Both eating a plant raw and brewing it will leave seed/spawn behind, which can then be transferred to a seed bag, planted and used to grow more. Farming this crop is advisable to newer players because of the speed of growth and the easily edible result, as opposed to other crops that require plant processing and/or cooking to be edible.

(* Technically, mushrooms do not have "seeds", but they work just the same in-game.)
