Our Famous Mushroom Logs
October 2020 update: Shiitake and oyster logs already inoculated this spring 2020 take a year to incubate and are now available for sale now that the culture is visibly colonized into the log.
Which part of your property is too shady to grow that delicious plant? EDEN in SEASON’s mushroom logs are a simple way to grow your own mushrooms.
If the only mushrooms you have ever eaten have come from the supermarket, you are in for a treat… gourmet log-grown mushrooms are much fuller in taste and texture than the store-quality shiitake and button mushroom varieties. A little butter and some garlic are all they need to WOW your senses.
Mushroom logs make a unique gift for the foodie in your life, and is fun and educational for children.
We guarantee a well cared for log will provide years of delicious, nutritious mushrooms. Better yet, you’ll get to experience the thrill of watching them grow, and of picking them yourself just moments before your meal. Each log includes an instruction guide with a "mushroom log log" to track your years of fun.
Our ready-to-fruit logs are priced by weight starting from $35. Larger mushroom logs and quantity orders translate to greater savings.
- Treat your pet log as a low-maintenance shade-loving plant. Typically fruits twice a year for 4-7 years
- Natural rainfall is sufficient and best, although additional watering recommended during week-long summer droughts
- Winter hardy, ideally under a blanket of snow, as long as it is protected from winter sun and drying winds
- Sunlight exposure after picking greatly increases its Vitamin D content!
