Shiitake, meaning "mushroom of the shii or oak tree" are highly prized in the Orient, for their flavour
and reputed medicinal value. Shiitake mushrooms have been cultivated in Asia, and are more chewy and
aromatic than common button mushrooms. The Shiitake mushroom is a dietary source of protein, Vitamin
B & D, and rich in minerals.
The Gourmet Mushroom Log is a white oak log that has been inoculated with the shiitake mushroom spawn.
The log has incubated in our laying yard in a woodlot setting. Approximately 12 inches in length and
4 inches in diameter, the log is ready to produce shiitake mushrooms for up to 5 years. The shiitake
mushrooms will appear at 8-10 week intervals for your summer enjoyment!
When you order your Shiitake Mushroom Log, you will receive instructions and mushroom recipes to make
your mushroom growing experience simple and rewarding.
Growing mushrooms will be an outdoor activity you will love!
