Are giant puffball mushrooms poisonous?

The inside of mature Giant puffballs is greenish brown, whereas the interior of immature puffballs is white. The large white mushrooms are edible when young. The fruiting body of a puffball mushroom will develop within the period of a few weeks and soon begin to decompose and rot, at which point it is dangerous to eat.

Also, can you eat a puffball mushroom raw?

If you follow this one rule you should be able to enjoy mushroom hunting for puffball mushrooms without worry. Not all puffballs are edible, and not all are edible at all stages, but if you stick with the rule of pure white inside then you will only be eating edible puffballs.
