Hen of the Woods Mushroom


Hen of the Woods Mushroom

Grifola frondosa Rich earthy semi-firm mushroom resembles a fat hen with leafy feathers and can weigh up to 20 lbs. This tasty polypore has a flavor akin to eggplant. Will fruit only in 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.
