Shiitake - Certified Organic, Grown on hardwood logs or hardwood sawdust, these mushrooms take longer to grow but have a delectable texture and dense flavour utilizable in savoury dishes, and popular in Chinese and Japanese cooking. Our Shiitake mushrooms have a large and full bodied texture and shape as a result of our modified growing techniques.

Shiitake have a long growing cycle and are cultivated on specific deciduous trees that impart a deep woodsy and earthy flavor to the mushroom.
