It's kinda yellow inside. Like the foam in old sofas
And if it IS too old, can I dump it at my allotment and hope for little baby puffballs next year?

That is far far to old.

Should be a nice white all the way through. Even yellow is too old.

Actually, if your new mate doesn't find a home closer to you, give us a shout
