Shiitakes are wonderfully flavored Japanese mushrooms that have all kinds of culinary uses. They are so big and meaty that you can use them on a bun in place of a burger! This kit contains 100 "plugs" that have been inoculated with mushroom spawn. You will need to select a log, drill holes in it, insert the plugs into the holes, seal them up, and soon you will have a bumper crop of fantastic mushrooms. Shiitakes can take nine months or more to begin producing. This strain has been selected to perform well at a wide range of temperatures. Instructions on how to select your log will be provided with the kit.
Each kit contains 100 plugs. You will need a drill, some beeswax and a wax dauber to install them into your freshly cut hardwood log.
