Observation 13100: Lentinula edodes (Berk.) Pegler

When: 2008-10-25

Collection location: Southeast Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Purchased 2 space bags colonized with Lentinula edodes at the Oregon Mycological Society’s Fall Mushroom Show on Oct. 11. With the cooler weather in the last week, the bags have formed buttons, and are now starting to fruit. Only 2 harvested today, and they were quite young, but the veil had broken completely from the rim, so am drying them at this time. Have a lot more coming on. Always nice to have fresh shiitake with my omelet!
