These go black and slimy

Within a day or two of reaching full size. They look unpleasant then, but surprisingly they are edible when "fresh". (A reminder that you always need to be very sure of any fungi you eat.)
One of their relatives contains a substance that makes you ill if eaten in conjunction with alcohol - so no white wine with that one!
