An Edicap mushroom is a type of food that can be grown in the Dungeoneering skill, with farming level 68. It can be grown by planting an edicap mushroom spore in a farming patch, on certain complexity levels, in a dungeon. It takes very little time to grow and when picked, and can be eaten for a restoration of 90 life points. Like all other dungeoneering crops, they never get diseased. Only one seed is needed to grow a batch of edicap mushrooms. 3 to 5 mushrooms could be harvested, more with a gatherer ring with a maximum of 10.
A strategy is if food the whole party's food supply is out is if players have at least 3000 coins buys 1 or more Edicap mushroom spore(s) from the Smuggler and plant them in a Farming patch, then gives each party member one or more (depending on the size of the party) mushrooms, they then eat those as food. This is also useful for bosses.
They can then be added to baked cave potato, with or without toppings to increase the number of life points healed. Edicap mushrooms do not require cooking to be eaten or combined with other foods. Varying cooking levels are required though, as shown in the table below:

- In the 'real world' there are several varieties of "cap" mushrooms such as "Inky cap," "Panther cap," and the infamous "Death cap" poisonous mushroom. There is, however, no 'edicap'; this seems to be a portmanteau word of 'edible' and 'cap.'
- The graphics of fully grown edicap mushrooms in a farming patch shows 8 mushrooms.
