Shiitake mushroom logs are not only tasty and ornamental they are easy to grow. Living Gifts ships you logs that are ready to fruit. Just place in your backyard and soon your log will fruit and produce shiitake mushrooms. They will fruit again 2 to 3 times a year for up to 3 to 5 years. You can grow fresh and delicious mushrooms in your home with mushroom logs inoculated with Hericium erinaceus. These hardwood logs are hand inoculated with mushroom spores, beginning the colonizing process throughout the wood. After anywhere from 2-8 months, the colonized log is ready to begin fruiting. While the main fruiting time is spring, the logs can be shocked into fruiting indoors throughout the year. If managed correctly, your logs can produce mushrooms for years. From the Pharaohs of Egypt to today’s top chefs, mushrooms have remained a staple in diverse cuisines. Besides being delicious, mushrooms are rich in vitamins, cholesterol lowering Chitin and heart-healthy Beta-glucan. They also contain Potassium (which helps lower blood pressure), Selenium (an antioxidant) and 20-40% of your daily requirement of Copper.
