Morels (Morchella Sp.) are one of the most prized wild edibles. They produce large, pitted fruiting bodies with a unique texture and rich flavor. Unlike many cultivated mushrooms that have a robust meaty flavor, morels are best described as woody, nutty, and earthy.
Morels are a famously difficult mushroom species to cultivate but are great for experimenting with new methods. Given their difficulty, we do not currently recommend it for commercial use. (Please let us know of your successes and failures when trying to cultivate this species!)
We recommend using this experimental spawn in outdoor beds, forest floor inoculations, or utilizing burned substrates.
Morel mushrooms do not grow on logs.
We consider this an experimental spawn strain that will benefit from cultivation trials in the burned substrate.
Our Morel culture was obtained from fruiting specimens in burnt-pitch pine forests in New England. Known colloquially as ‘greenies’ in the western U.S., burn Morels are extremely rare in Northern New England.
4-12 weeks (outdoor beds)
If you don’t plan to use your morel sawdust spawn right away, store it in the refrigerator. Use within 6 months of receipt.
Morels make a great accompaniment to meats, fish, and risottos. Larger morels may be stuffed and grilled, baked, or sautéed. Always cook morel mushrooms thoroughly. Morels should not be eaten raw or consumed in large quantities because they contain a toxic substance which is only destroyed when cooked.
All our spawn is made using organic cultures from our own culture bank. Our sawdust spawn is handmade from a blend of locally sourced, all-natural, organic, and non-GMO woods and supplements from farms and forests in New England and North America.
If you’re going to consume homegrown mushrooms, make sure to cook your fresh mushrooms thoroughly with heat. If it is your first time eating this species, it is best to start with a small amount to check for allergies, even if cooked. Always cook morel mushrooms thoroughly. Morels should not be eaten raw or consumed in large quantities because they contain a toxic substance that is only destroyed when cooked.
