The Garden Giant™ (Stropharia rugoso-annulata) grows equally well in beds of hardwood chips and on straw within the garden, especially between rows of corn and amongst leafy vegetables. In the process, your garden will flourish from nutrients released by this monster mushroom!
This kit can be held for up to 4 months in a cool dark place before activating.
These mushrooms are delicious when cut like steaks, basted with teriyaki and barbecued on a grill.
These giant, burgundy-colored mushrooms are low-maintenance and fruit in temperatures as low as 40° F and as high as 90° F.
Once inoculated, beds of the Garden Giant™ (also known as King Stropharia) take 4-12 months to fruit. Flushes span 6 months to 2 years depending on care, location and mass of colonized material.
