Proudly presenting: new mushroom species at Mycelia

Thu 12th September, 2013

Our team boasts 4 researchers, who dedicate a number of their time to a large number of species of fungi in function of edibility, substrate recipe, growth properties, medicinal properties and others. Over the years, Mycelia has constantly adapted its strain list through adding and substracting species and strains. This has ended up in an extensive list of over 200 species and strains of fungi and in 50 species and strains of which we produce spawn on a regular basis. The others are used less frequently and are kept as mother culture and mother spawn.

The company has added a number of species and strains to its list recently:

- M2650, Pleurotus ferulae: larger brother of the Pleurotus eryngii, this strain is very popular in South-East Asia and notably in China, where its fruitbodies are highly priced.

- M2670, Pleurotus nebrodensis: very similar to the Pleurotus ferulae discribed above, there is still a lot of discussion about the naming of these species. The fruitbodies are very similar: firm, fleshy, excellent quality.

- M3790, Lentinula edodes: this strain has proven to be very promising. It could well become one of Europe's most cultivated Shii-take mushroom strains. It loves the cold and semi-cold, has short cycles and produces great mushrooms with a typical shape.

- M9993 and M9994, Schizofyllum commune: eaten mainly in Africa, this species is easy to grow and tasty to the palate. It produces mushrooms that look a bit like those of the Turkey Tail and that have an excellent preservability
