The Crimini/Baby Bella mushroom is one of the tastiest mushrooms ever grown! They are very solid button mushrooms and some can develop into large portabellas if left to grow and not picked. When harvested young, they can be used in the same way as the regular white button mushroom. Its solid content makes this mushroom a meaty and wonderful mushroom to cook with and it’s often used as a meat substitute. The Crimini Mushroom Kit grows several crops and the first two crops are usually very large, almost filling the box with mushrooms. The subsequent crops after that get smaller fruiting in clusters and lesser amounts, until the mushrooms finally stop. The kit contains inoculated mushroom compost, casing and instructions. All you have to do is just add water.
