The Japanese name “Shiitake” consists of the words “Take” (= mushroom) and “Shii” (= Pasania-tree) and means “mushroom that grows on a tree”. The Shiitake has originally been domiciled in Japan, Korea and China and his special characteristics are known by the population for more than 2000 years.

The inoculation of logs with mushroom cultures can be done during the whole year, if the logs are stored frost-protected while spawn run. According to species, mushrooms will fruit several years, till all nutrients of the wood have been consumed by the fungus.
For a perfect yield, the quality of the logs is essential! Please use hardwood (most suitable: oak, beech, birch, alder, shiia/pasania, chestnut). We recommend to use logs (with bark!) diameter approx. 15 - 20 cm length 70 bis 120 cm.
