Chicken of the Woods Mushroom


Chicken of the Woods Mushroom

Laetiporus sulphureus Large bright orange fruit bodies have a texture reminiscent of chicken. Great in soups and stir-fries. Fruits all season from late spring into late fall. Prefers large-diameter oak logs.

For success with sawdust spawn, we recommend heat-treating and incubating log segments in XL Filter Patch Bags (not needed for plug spawn).

Plug Spawn are small wooden dowels colonized by mushroom mycelium, in bags of 100 or 500.
Sawdust Spawn is hardwood sawdust colonized by mushroom mycelium; bag contains 5½ lbs.
Not available in kits.

Ships on our regular schedule, between about March 29 and May 6.
