Bluecaps were tall (up to 6 inches), slender white mushrooms with pale blue caps.
Bluecap was inedible in its raw state, but it could be ground into a bland flour and baked into nutritious sporebread (also called bluebread). Bluecap was known for its ease of cultivation (it could be grown with or without faerzress), and it was cultivated by nearly all of the Underdark races.
A loaf of spoorbread was equivalent to one pound (almost a half kilogram) of food.
The caps of bluecap mushrooms could be prepared by those with the correct herbalism knowledge to make a stew that would neutralize poison.
