Poplar Mushrooms

A Strong, Savoury Flavour

A stunning New Zealand Agrocybe mushroom isolated from poplar and plane trees. It has an unusually large veil that hangs down like a skirt. This mushroom is also known as Tawaka in New Zealand. Recommended if you enjoy a strong savoury, meaty-mushroom flavour. Grows on poplar or plane tree logs. Cut a log after the leaves have dropped and inoculate 4-8 weeks later.

Happy Customers

“Just wanted to let you know that my mushroom kit is a great success. I have oyster mushrooms sprouting all over the bag. Really pleased.”

– Cristine – Paraparaumu

“Growing the oyster mushrooms was great fun for the whole family. They seem to be relatively easy to grow in hay. We loved to watch the spawning. We grew them in our garage. I have previously purchased a kit from Palmers, and kept it regenerating for well over 10 cycles”

– T.H. – Whangarei

“The mycelium was very quick to colonise the bag, and the fruits were huge.”
