HARVESTING BLACK MUSHROOM

Here they are my black mushroom or 'Jamur Kuping'.
I bought it on the expo about three weeks ago.
I put them near the sink on my kitchen.
You can see the mushroom when they came in to my 'kitchen garden' at the first time here.
I harvested the first mushroom a week after I bought it, but the yield was not good enough.
The growth of this mushroom is much slower than my oyster mushroom


Look my bag logs now... the mushrooms look so healthy on my kitchen.




They are ready to be harvested soon.




I think they will be a great dish.
Can't wait for it...

  2. Wow, I have eaten a lot of different mushrooms, but I don’t think I have ever had black mushrooms. Are they as velvety as they look? I tried growing mushrooms too, some years ago, but it didn’t go too well, I think my house is too dry, only got 3 small mushrooms! I also had a mushroom log outside, but got absolutely nothing so haven’t tried again. Yours look lovely :-)

    1. The texture is velvety and a bit crunchy. Yes, they need humid room to keep them grow healthy.

    1. The real taste is plain, but when we cook it, the taste will be so delicious and crunchy.
