Shiitake Log Inoculation Kit (Summer Fruiting)
Shiitake Mushrooms (Lentinula edodes) are delicous gourmet mushrooms that have been grown for thousands of years. They have a deep savoury flavour and work beautifully as a meat substitute in terms of flavour and texture. Shiitake should be cooked thouroughly before consumption.
This is a warm fruiting Shiitake that will fruit in summer.
Each log kit includes 30 inoculated wooden plugs plus bee's wax to seal the holes and log ends.
An 8mm drill will be required, you also need to melt your wax.
30 pugs are enough to inoculate a meter long log of 15-20 cm diameter (any bigger than this they become hard to handle).
Logs should be fresh / green and less than 8 weeks old and only inoculate one type per log.
> Hardwood is best (oak, beech, birch, alder, ash, elm etc).
> Fruit trees (apple, plum, cherry etc) are ok but will take longer to fruit.
> Soft wood / pines / conifers must be avoided due to their natural anti-fungal properties.
Available items will be posted out the following week direct from Marvellous Mushrooms HQ, shipping is included in the items price
