'207' Lentinula edodes NSLE1: A new name for a favorite commercial strain for indoor Shiitake block production. Yield averages .75-1.5 lb first flush off of 5 lb supplemented sawdust blocks. Fruits best at colder temperatures and tends to produce mushrooms with smaller stems and large caps. Our culture is direct from Belgium and retains the highly desired characteristics of this strain.
'Acorn' Lentinula edodes NSLE2: A variation on commercial indoor Shiitake genetics. We've had similar results from this strain as from our '207' strain listed above. We like having multiple varieties of the same species to ensure genetic diversity and reduce the odds of crop failure.
