The robust umami flavor of the shiitake mushroom is nothing short of spectacular. Add a few dried shiitakes to any stir fry, sauce, soup, or broth and enjoy.
Our shiitake sawdust spawn is intended for outdoor grower's planning on making logs out of oak or maple logs. Expect fruitbodies to emerge from logs the following year in June and September-November depending on climate. The block or the logs can be manually fruited by dunking in water for 24-48 hours. The more often this is done the less often the substrate will naturally bear fruit.
Grain spawn bags are intended for indoor grower's with a laboratory environment. The 4 lb bag of grain spawn can inoculate approximately 100 lbs of supplemented sawdust, fully colonizing the substrate in approximately 10 days.
Spawn orders are made to order. Expect a 4-8 week lead time before shipping. Spawn products require 2-day shipping.
