Shiitake Growing Kit

Grow nutritious shiitake mushrooms in your backyard. Organic, flavourful shiitake mushrooms are delicious sauteed, stir fried, or grilled.

The Shiitake Mushroom Growing Kit is perfect for those backyard gardeners who have access to fresh firewood and would like to grow their own nutritious edible organic shiitake mushrooms. The mushroom grow kit allows the opportunity to experience the pleasure of growing these delicious edible mushrooms.

Freshly cut logs or branches 3-4 inches in diameter from oak, alder, sugar maple, red maple, birch, beech, cottonwood and willow trees or sweet gum trees can be inoculated with shiitake spawn plugs and allowed to incubate in a well-shaded outdoor wooded area. The following summer and over the next 7 to 8 summers, shiitake mushrooms will appear seasonally. The amount of shiitake mushrooms produced will depend on humidity, temperature and rainfall.

The Shiitake Mushroom Growing Kit includes 250 shiitake mushroom spawn plugs, a brad-point drill bit, specialty wax, waxing brush, step-by-step how-to instructions and recipes.

The Shiitake Mushroom Growing Kit will “inoculate” five logs or large branches, 3-4 inches in diameter by 4 feet long. All you need are the logs/branches and a drill.
