Think of them as Grandpa and Grandma Shiitake. Grow them together for large harvests or alternate the producing logs and harvest shiitakes every month. Or, give one as a gift and keep one for yourself!

The logs can grow indoors like plants or outside in shade. They can produce shiitakes about every two months for about 3-5 years. Soaking the logs in non-chlorinated ice water for 24 hours “shocks” them and starts the mushroom "fruiting" cycle. Mushrooms sprout in 6-10 days, yielding 1/4-1/3 pound or more per log -- more if they are fruited together (it's a pheremonal thing). Then the logs “rest” until the next fruiting. They 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 a log can be covered top-to-bottom with fresh, meaty shiitakes.

The Best Buy makes a really generous gift (especially when you add The Shiitake Sampler Cookbook for only $8.95). Each log is a 14" long section of hardwood such as oak or gum hand picked and ready to grow mushrooms. Each has its own tray for soaking, fruiting and resting . Quick-start and detailed instructions and our Lost Creek Mushroom Farm recipe booklet with 8 recipes round out the kit. Each Shiitake Tree in a Tray is fully guaranteed to grow shiitake mushrooms.

For the discount, both kits must be shipped to the same address.
