Lion's Mane mushrooms (Hericium sp) are known for their incredibly unique appearance and the fact that their flavor bears a marked resemblance to crab or lobster meat! The 'Pom Pom' varietal is identical to other species of Lion's Mane in flavor but differs slightly in the appearance. 'Pom Pom' fruits as a single round ball with a more even spination than other varieties. Have a shellfish allergy but want to experience the coast? Try Lion's Manes!
