Both of our blankets are seasonably interchangeable, but we use the Heavy Fruiting Blanket primarily in the early spring and late fall to provide extra protection from cold temperatures and wind. Heavy Fruiting Blankets are cut in 12.5 x 10 ft. lengths - perfect for covering 10 ft. row of fruiting Shiitake logs stacked in an A-frame, or one to two crib stacks. We also use blankets to protect cold weather fruiting mushrooms from logs resting on the forest floor from deer and rodent damage.
