This Shiitake likes the cold. This is expressed by slowly developing and growing, though beautiful fruit bodies of the donko-type: dark-brown, nicely scaled, heavy and short-stemmed. In warmer growing circumstances the flesh becomes thinner and the colour lighter. With cultivation on substrate blocks, a ripening phase of 4,5 months needs to be taken into account. This strain is often used on wood, on which it produces very large donko mushrooms.
