Shitarki Mushrooms?
« on: September 14, 2011, 09:08:37 pm »
I had some Shitarki mushroom plugs a few years ago, 2-3 and put them in a tree stump but since moved them all over the garden, soooooo, I went out this morning and noticed, in my bit of garden where I have pretend Toadstools that light up ::) ::) I know!! and saw them, I will NOT be eating them but wonder if they at least look like the mushrooms I am not sure about spelling util I go onto google!!!

What do people think?  I keep trying to shrink it but its being a bit difficult...will try again

I tried googling shitarki mushrooms and nothing came up.  Can anyone send me a link to information about them please.

Well done

sorry to bring a bit of logic in here, but why buy the plugs and fit them, then wait two years, to get an amazing crop and then NOT eat it????? :o

When Shiitake mushrooms mature their skin is quite dark and cracks a bit
see http://www.feralfoods.org/Shiitake.html
Do you have a supermarket nearby which might sell them for comparison.
If yours are real shiitake, you have a feast on your hands and it would be a shame to waste them
I have tried growing them with no success so far.

it would be worth identifying them properly with spore tests etc. it looks like 2 different kinds,one on each log. the one in the foreground looks like a bolete but the one to the rears different.it might be an oyster mushroom type. certain identified boletes are a part of the polish christmas dinner and are rare and make good money ;)
