Ready to Grow Chestnut Mushroom Kit
So, when it comes to growing chestnuts, it’s important to keep things nice and cool. They can be a little tricky though, and you’ll need to make sure the humidity is just right when the mushrooms are still in their early stages, otherwise, they can dry out or stop growing altogether. And just a heads up – getting subsequent fruitings can be a bit of a challenge, so you’ll need to put in some extra work and attention. But don’t worry, you got this!
Hey there! Our chestnut (Pholiota adiposa) fruiting block is home to a popular strain that’s widely loved in Japan. You’ll be delighted by the small-to-medium, velvety mushrooms with speckled caps that resemble their namesake nut. And when you cook them up, they release a wonderful, woodsy aroma and have a crunchy texture with a rich, nutty, mildly-sweet flavor.
Just keep in mind that these chestnuts prefer cooler temperatures and need to be kept humid in their early stages, or they might dry out and stop growing. And if you’re hoping for a second crop, it can be a bit tricky, but with some extra attention and work, it’s definitely possible.
