Big Boy is Shiitake Ma & Pa's taller son, a 12-inch shiitake mushroom log kit that will grow fresh, organic shiitakes about every two months for 3-5 years. A good gift (even better with The Shiitake Sampler Cookbook). The kit includes a ready-to-grow hardwood log such as oak or gum, quick-start and detailed instructions and our Lost Creek Mushroom Farm 8-recipe booklet. Our Big Boy is fully guaranteed to grow shiitake mushrooms.

Keep Big Boy inside like a plant or outside in shade. Soaking him in non-chlorinated cold water for 24 hours starts the mushroom "fruiting" cycle. Mushrooms sprout in 6-10 days, yielding 3-5 ounces or more. Big Boy needs to “rest” then until the next fruiting. He'll need soaking every two weeks in non-chlorinated room-temperature water. Expect a few mushrooms to start with, then increasingly larger yields as the log matures. In the second year your log can be covered top-to-bottom with fresh shiitakes.

Our Big Boy Kit includes a 12-inch ready-to-grow hardwood log such as oak or gum, quick-start and detailed instructions, and our Lost Creek Mushroom Farm recipe booklet. This kit is fully guaranteed to grow shiitake mushrooms.

Include the Shiitake Sampler Cookbook with 51 recipes for only $8.95. As your log matures, you'll have enough shiitakes to make it worthwhile! The Shiitake Sampler adds happy value to Big Boys you give as gifts.
