Our chestnut (Pholiota adiposa) grain spawn is perfect for those looking to cultivate a unique mushroom variety. These mushrooms have a velvety texture and beautiful speckled caps. When cooked, they offer a crunchy bite, and a rich, nutty flavour with a touch of sweetness.

They are a bit challenging to grow, preferring cooler temperatures and consistent humidity. While chestnuts typically don't produce past the first flush, successful cultivation can yield significant harvests.


    You can mix chestnut grain spawn into sterilized hardwood sawdust. If you've never used grain spawn before, make sure to read a mushroom cultivation book or watch a video tutorial online.
