Thimble spawn has been discontinued indefinitely due to supply chain issues involving the forms. We are pursuing alternatives, but until we find a reliable source, thimble spawn will remain unavailable.

Nearly as popular as WR46™ and equally dependable, this strain has a slight advantage in environments with warmer fruiting temperatures. Spawn run may be faster than other wide range strains in areas where summers are prone to dry spells or logs cannot be irrigated. Fruiting temp range 55-75°F. West Wind™ is also slightly more drought tolerant than other WR strains, and shows a slight preference for red oak over white oak. Fruits naturally in the spring and fall. Thimble spawn is available September to June, and is always made-to-order and ready to ship in 3-4 weeks.
