Product Review on The Giant Morel Mushroom Patch™

I bought the The Giant Morel Mushroom Patch™  as a gift for my dad last October. The kit is available at fungi.com (link on homepage) and is one of many mushroom kits and products available. Dad lives in Oregon now and I was curious how the kit would grow. He also loves morels and is living in a new area, so homegrown mushrooms in his backyard seemed like a good idea.

Dad followed the instructions and his mushroom bed was ready before the end of October. The kit can take up to 2 years to produce mushrooms, and morels are one of the tougher fungi to grow. Report from Oregon last week was the patch has produced its  first morel. There won’t probably be many mushrooms to eat this year, but we know the fungus is established and growing underground.
Quite a feat for a first time mushroom farmer, and when the conditions are right there will be gourmet food.

I have ordered another outdoor kit and some inoculated plugs from fungi perfecti and will report on their progress. I was so impressed with the results of the The Giant Morel Mushroom Patch™ that I just ordered another one as a gift. I will report on it’s progress also as it will live in Montana!

  1. Are you looking for the mushroom patch to grow them, or are you looking for giant morels to purchase?

  2. when you started that Giant Morel Mushroom patch in Dec. what was the stuff you poured on it?
    Can I get any of it or make it my self?

  3. Hello,
    The Giant Morel Patch kit we used was from Fungi Perfecti. The link to the website is on the homepage. You can make your own spawn by using cardboard or other substrates to transfer the mycelium from stem butts or spores.
    Thank you,
    Dean
