Terumos and Maaser on Mushrooms


Are mushrooms obligated in terumos and maaser?
Thank you


They are not obligated, even though they might appear as if they were planted on the ground, they grow from the air. As a side point, mushrooms sold in cans in Israel, are not grown locally, but in Holland and other countries, where terumos u’ma’asros are not applicable.

Rambam Terumos 2-1, Shevet Halevi 8-248.
