Description

Winter mushroom (Enokitake) - Flammulina velutipes - SPAWN FOR ORGANIC / BIO CULTIVATION ON Wood logs

Syn.: Enoki Mushroom, The golden mushroom (Thailand), Nametake, Yuki-motase, Jin Zhen Gu

The Winter mushroom / Enokitake has a long tradition in Asian cuisine. One cultivation form of this mushroom is Enokitake. This type is produced under low lightening, in that way the mushroom makes small but very delicious fruiting bodies. The fruiting bodies have a diameter of 2-10 cm, the stem is 3-8 cm long. Enokitake produces white spores. It can be found in the cold and moderate climate zones on the northern hemisphere, e.g., China, Siberia, Asia Minor, Europe, North America and Japan; on the southern hemisphere in Australia.

Cultivation of Enokitake has a long tradition in China and was documented for the first time around 800 A.D. As soon as the fruiting bodies had grown to their full size, the cultivators of that time rubbed them on wood logs. With a bit of luck there was a good harvest in the year after. However, the use of spawn dowels, as practised today, is much more effective.

Production time: Spawn is made fresh after ordering, production time 3 to 6 weeks.
This product is fresh produce and should be processed immediatly after delivery.

Winter mushroom (enokitake) - Flammulina velutipes - Mushroom spawn for wood logs
Certified for organic mushroom cultivation according to Regulation EC 834/2007 and 889/2008
( Organic control station: AT-BIO-701, Biko Tyrol)
1 autoclave bag approx. 3 kg - 6 liter
Suitable for inoculation of 25 to 30 linear meters of wood.

You receive ready colonized mushroom spawn made from organic raw material (wood, rye bran from organic farming) for inoculation of wood logs. Suitable woods are: oak, alder, poplar, cottonwood, aspen, willow, birch, beech, etc.
This strain is fruiting in late autumn to early winter.

For quantities of 10 or more logs inoculation with sawdust spawn is usually more efficient than working with dowels. Sawdust is a byproduct and more cost efficient and environmentaly sustainable than dowels that have to be produced. Because of this large quantities of spawn can be produced for a lower price. Sawdust spawn is suitable for the borehole inoculation method and the cutting inoculation method. Expected harvest yield is up to 10 % of the fresh woods weight divided on several flushes over 3 to 5 years.

For the borehole-method we recommend the usage of a mushroom drill, and an inoculation stick or a hand inoculator.
Larger quantities for commercial mushroom growing on request.
