Strain | Snow Cap Shiitake

Lentinula edodes

Snow Cap shiitake prefers high humidity, making it an excellent choice for winter production in the south. This strain produces thick, chewy caps that are tufted with thick white ornamentation. Snow Cap fruits naturally in the spring and fall, but does not respond to force-fruiting.
