When cooked, they turn into a rich golden brown color. The flavor is meaty, somewhat nutty and full of umami. When cooked, the flavor intensifies. If fried until crispy, the flavor may even resemble bacon or ham. Their meat-like flavor and succulent / slightly chewy texture makes them a wonderful meat substitute for many dishes.

Home grown mushrooms are delicious in stir frys, ramen, pasta, on pizza, in an egg scramble or just straight up as an accompaniment to any savory meal. They also make a great meat substitute in many dishes.
Mushrooms are low in calories and high in nutrients, such as fiber, vitamin D, potassium, and selenium. By growing your own mushrooms, you can ensure that you are consuming fresh, nutritious produce without any added preservatives or chemicals.
Mushrooms contain beta-glucans, which are complex sugars that have been shown to enhance the immune system's function. Consuming mushrooms regularly may help reduce the risk of infections and improve overall health.
Mushrooms are a natural source of tryptophan, an amino acid that is used by the body to produce serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, appetite, and sleep. Consuming mushrooms or growing them yourself may help improve your mood and reduce the risk of depression.

Mushrooms take time to start from grain spawn to sterilized bags and then need to be kept warm and happy to get them ready to grow. All of our kits are made to order so processing times can vary. The process of making a mushroom grow kit involves several steps to create an environment suitable for mushroom cultivation: Substrate preparation, inoculation, bag filling, incubation & mycelium colonization.
A: There are 3 triggers to start mushroom pinning/fruiting. These include the introduction of oxygen, light, and sound (like thunderstorms). The mushroom blocks don’t require a ton of light but they do need some in order to grow healthy mushrooms. They prefer indirect light over direct sunlight, as direct sunlight can easily dry them out. More light also helps with color development with the pink and blue oyster varieties.
A: Anywhere in your home that provides indirect light, oxygen & more humidity is best - this could mean your kitchen countertop or even your bathroom. The temperature in the room should ideally be between 60-65 degrees, but the mushrooms can handle anywhere from 55-75 degrees. We suggest placing your kit in an area in your house that you frequent so you remember to water it! Do not place your kit outside.
A: Generally, you want to provide the block with more humidity during the pinning/fruiting process, backing off just slightly during the maturing process. In the beginning pinning phase, misting your mushroom block 3 times per day is ideal (morning, afternoon, & evening). When the mushrooms start maturing, 1-2 times per day is sufficient, (not directly on the mushrooms).
A: You may see pinning/fruiting* in 5-7 days but depending on the environment, they may take 2 weeks or more.
*This is the stage where the mushrooms start to fruit. It's called pinning because the little mushrooms sometimes look like little pinheads. They’ll continue to grow from that point on.
A: The typical yield ratio is around 40% of the weight of the block. For instance, a 5 lb block will typically yield 2-2.5 lbs of fruit.
A: You should start your mushroom block as soon as you receive it for best results.
A: While mushroom cultivation using a grow kit is generally safe, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. It's important to maintain cleanliness and proper hygiene during the cultivation process to minimize the risk of contamination. Additionally, some individuals may be sensitive or allergic to certain types of mushrooms, so it's advisable to be aware of any potential allergies and handle mushrooms with care. We recommend fully cooking your mushrooms once harvested.
