What Are Shiitake Mushrooms?
Shiitake mushrooms (species Lentinus edodes) are Asian forest mushrooms that grow on rotting wood logs. I will provide you with . Native to East Asia and cultivated in Japan and China for centuries, the Japanese name shiitake comes from shii, one of the hardwood trees that the mushrooms grow on, and take, or mushroom. Shiitakes are the third most cultivated mushroom worldwide, just behind the white button mushroom and oyster mushroom.
Traditionally, shiitake mushrooms are grown on deadwood logs, a time-intensive process that yields a high-quality mushroom. Over the past few decades, alternative techniques for cultivating shiitake mushrooms have emerged, using waste products such as corncobs and sunflower seed hulls as growing media. In addition to the farmed shiitakes, you’ll find at the grocery store, shiitakes and other members of the Lentinus genus (including some native to the United States) can forage as wild mushrooms.
