Pioppino Grain Spawn
We make fresh grain spawn upon request, but please note depending on the species and time of year the grain will take different amounts of time to prepare.
Grain spawn is fantastic for all styles of mushroom cultivation, ensuring you can grow your own gourmet mushrooms with ease.
Our spawn is ready to use for bag and log cultivation.
Pioppino mushroom is in our top three of favourite mushrooms, not only for its fantastic flavour and texture, but also for awesome colour and shape as it grows.
The Pioppino mushroom is notorious for its smooth rounded cap and long white stem. The cap is yellowish-brown in color with gray gills that turn brown with spores.
When cultivating pioppino mushrooms outside, it is best to use the stumps of cottonwood, willow, poplar, and maple trees. It is also sufficient to grow them outside on woodchip beds.
We really love pioppino as it has a wonderful chewy texture when cooked. It is amazing in everything. Chop the larger stems finely.
Please note: Forest Fungi make grain spawn fresh to order to increase vigour. It takes around 1 - 3 weeks to inoculate and will be shipped as soon as possible.
