This fast-growing strain of Shiitake is our favorite mushroom here on the farm. Once you activate your Shiitake mushroom grow kit, the first harvest will begin growing and will form big beautiful mushrooms over 10 to 14 days.  Our Shiitake blocks produce 1-2 crops. Experience the joy and wonder of watching beautiful mushrooms grow before your eyes and then eating them!

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 mushroom grow kits are 100% Certified Organic blocks of enriched hardwood sawdust that is fully colonized by mycelium from our favorite hardy strain of Shiitake.

Each mushroom grow kit comes complete with care instructions and recipes!

Mushroom kits are a live item so we will be holding all early holiday orders to be shipped in December. Peak Holiday shipping will take place from December 8th-16th but we ship orders up until December 23rd. We'll be shipping all of December but preordered kits go out first! Once you receive your kit, store it in a refrigerator or in a cool/dry place until you are ready to start it or gift it. 

If you want your kit shipped later or on a particular day let us know by adding a note to your order. This is possible when viewing your cart.

If you would like your kit to be delivered earlier, simply use the standard shipping option at checkout and keep your kit in the refrigerator until you're ready to gift it. Grow kits can be refrigerated for up to 30 days.

Shiitaki Mushrooms

We made a fruiting container per your instructions. Started it on 07/23/22. We were harvesting on all 3 blocks 5 days later. The blocks are now back in for the next crop after soaking in a bucket overnight. Would love to post the pictures but see no place here to do so.

Surprisingly great compared to other "mushes" I've grown. Quckly "pinned" after kit arrived. Abundant "shrooms,"quckly thereafter abundantly. Ate the first ones tonight, delicious!

My experience was far more than expected. One ? Since the "flush" comes in rather simultaneously, from dime to half-dollar size, how do you distinguish which are ready to harvest since you can't turn the kit upside down to see gills or other traits?



Thank you for the review! You can definitely turn the kit upside down to check for gills. Just remove the humidity tent and flip it over in your hand. If gills are present it is time to harvest. Enjoy!

Be ready for a big harvest

Super happy with my experience, it paid for itself in the first harvest of 2lbs shiitake in less than 2 weeks when I get it
