Delicious, home-grown Shiitake in just two weeks!
This fast-growing strain of Shiitake is our favorite mushroom here on the farm. Once you activate you mushroom kit the first harvest will begin growing and will form big beautiful mushrooms over 10 to 14 days. Once the first crop has been harvested just soak the kit in cold water overnight and a new crop will begin growing in just another two weeks.
The mushrooms are easily grown indoors at temperatures averaging 60-70ºF, they prefer indirect light and require a daily misting to maintain humidity. Our Shiitake kits are 100% Certified Organic blocks of enriched hardwood sawdust that is fully colonized by mycelium from our favorite hardy strain of Shiitake.
Followed the directions, and the Shiitkes started to pop our right away. Very pleased
A gift for my husband who has talked about wanting to grow mushrooms at home for a while. He was initially somewhat dubious about this kit, but after commenting on how the baby mushrooms showed up quickly, he now calls me over during most mistings to observe how fast the mushrooms are growing. We're excited for our first and future harvests!
Package arrived in great condition. After following directions, the shiitake, once started, grew noticeably each day. A pleasure to watch these grow - shades of elementary school science classes! At first harvest, the largest was approximately 5.5 inches in diameter. The Cascadia team answered my questions rapidly via email and with spirit. Edible, good fun during the Covid lockdown. Awaiting second growth now. Cooks nicely with onions.
It is so much fun to watch them double in size everyday!!! Great product and delicious too. Highly recommend
