This Shiitake strain is special as it is growing well on straw. This makes it suitable for cultivation on straw-bales, unlike most other Shiitake strains. The "straw"-strain belongs to the shiitake with a colder fruiting temperature (14 - 16 ° Celsius). It may also fruit at higher temperatures, but this is not optimal and might lead to not as nicely developed fruit bodies.
Cultivating Shiitake on straw is still experimental and yields may be poorer compared to other species cultivated on straw bales.
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
