Shiitake Mushroom Log Kit

  • Exclusive
  • Online Only
  • Vendor Shipped

Savor the rich, meaty flavor and delicate texture of homegrown shiitake mushrooms. Grow them indoors or outdoors with little effort and no mess using our hand-cut hardwood log, which is inoculated with spores that produce a crop of organic shiitake mushrooms every two to three months for possibly two to three years. Simply soak the log in water to start the growing process, and you’ll be ready to harvest in just a few weeks. Shiitake mushrooms are delicious in everything from stir-fries and soups to pasta dishes and stews.

  • Logs are hand-cut and inoculated with shiitake mushroom spores in visible drill holes that are covered in cheese wax.
  • Logs can be stood upright or laid horizontally for growing.
  • Metal plaque on underside of log states date of inoculation.
  • Fruiting occurs approximately sixteen weeks from inoculation.
  • You can start the growing process and enjoy your first crop within a few weeks of delivery.
  • Just soak the log for 24 hours in cold water, mist it occasionally, and watch your crop emerge.
  • 12" long, approx. 3"–6" diam.
  • 4–7 lb.
  • Product of 2funguys USA.
  • Agricultural regulations prohibit shipment to CA.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No mushrooms, even after following instructions I sent two of these as a christmas gift last year to my sister. She contacted me a several weeks later to say no mushrooms. I contacted W-S and they immediately did replace the logs. Again my sister followed the instructions to a T, step by step and still no mushrooms. I'm just now posting this review because she just now told me , she didn't want me to be disappointed. But I am very disappointed as I know she followed the instructions exactly so I don't know what the issue could have been.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from monster mushrooms! These logs are excellent. My husband and I love them. Our logs yield beautiful, amazing shiitake mushrooms the size of pancakes. Not only is the fruit of the mushroom very large, but the taste is incredible when sauteed with olive oil and a little salt. We keep our logs in a shady area of the backyard, and give these logs as gifts regularly!
