Mushroom Logs

holy shiitake miss happiness cold weather strain

For that section of your property too shady for that tasty plant to thrive, EDEN in SEASON’s ready-to-fruit mushroom logs are a simple way to grow your own food.

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, let alone button mushrooms. A little butter and 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. Watching a log surprise you with mushrooms is a different magical experience you need to witness.

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 pet mushroom log kit includes an instruction guide with a “mushroom log log” to track your years of fun.

Select from Shiitake Mushroom or Oyster Mushroom varieties. When ordering, also ask us about fresh or dried product if you want to sneak a taste.

Our logs are priced by weight ($45 for a 20 lb log) + delivery as appropriate. A single log of this size constitutes marginal savings based on ~3lb of mushrooms retailed at $20/lb. Larger mushroom logs and quantity orders translate to greater savings.

January 2024 update: Spring 2023 inoculated shiitake and oyster logs are now available; however, they are under the snow in dormancy awaiting spring. Pre-order your log now.

Basic tips:

  • 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!
