This Shiitake Strain is particularly suitable for beginners and hobby-growers. Shiitake 75 brings good results and even if the growing conditions and substrate has not yet been 100 % perfected. The fruiting bodies of this Shiitake are equally medium sized. It can also be cultivated on straw but on that substrate the harvest yield is smaller in comparison with cultivation on wood substrates. Regarding the fruiting temperatures this Strain is also versatile regarding the temperatures, it fruits in a range between 10 to 24 °C, but you may consider that at lower temperatures the ripening of the fruit bodies may take some days longer.
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 people for more than 2000 years. The smell of this special mushroom is very similar to garlic and is due to an ingredient called Lenthionine. Shiitake counts to the most popular gourmet-mushrooms in the world
