After receiving the shiitake farm, How long will it take to fruit?
Typically it takes about 12-18 weeks after we make it (and the date it was made will be on the bag).
Before you received it, it will have incubated for two to three months, but it may still have 2 – 6 weeks before it’s ready to fruit.
In fulfilling orders, we do try to send the most mature shiitake farms that we have on hand. In some cases, they may already be pinning.
Being nature and your environment unique, mileage may vary, but If it seems to be taking longer than expected, try the “autumn storm” technique to encourage it to fruit.
