Shiitake Mushrooms

Delicious, Savoury, Fun!

Great flavour and texture especially when grown at home, and is renown for its health benefits. It has a brown cap and white gills with white flecks on the cap. Grow them from our Ready-to-Go sawdust logs, or your own freshly cut logs of oak, poplar, beech, birch and other deciduous trees. Cut a 5-20cm dia. log as the leaves change colour or have dropped and inoculate 2-4 weeks later. Logs can be cut at other times, but avoid 4 weeks either side the start of spring growth. Fast strains tend to be poor quality and slower have a higher quality. Let us know what you are after, what kind of logs and what time of year for informed advice on realistic yields.Tips included on keeping the culture going
