Description

A gorgeous clumping polypore, Maitake (a.k.a Hen of the Wood) is known for its full and rich flavor, prized medicinal qualities, and beautiful structure. This particular Maitake strain was collected from a White Oak located in the South Carolina Botanical Garden in Clemson, SC. Maitake are known to take longer to establish themselves and begin fruiting as the mycelium is a very slow one to spread. However, once established you can expect fruiting for many years. Can be consumed cooked, dried, as a tincture, and so on.

Flavor
Maitake have a strong and forward flavor, meaty, unctuous, and savory. Texture is purported to be crunchy and meat-like. Recommended to cook using oil instead of butter to open up the flavors.

Fruiting Temperatures/Conditions
Maitake will fruit for you in the fall and winter and prefers a temperature in the 50-65˚F range in order to produce fruiting bodies.

Wood Types/Media
Maitake actually grows on buried wood and likes to spread under the leaf layer on the ground prior to sending up fruits. We recommend buried oak logs/stumps.

Package contains 100 inoculated plugs.
