- Fleshy from medium to large sized mushroom.
- Dark brown coloured.
- The lower the temperature is the darker the mushrooms colour will be.
- Flat cap.
- Quick incubation and crop yielding.
- It yields crops easily with high temperatures.
- It grows in a wide temperature range, but it develops better over 20ºC.
- Temperature should not be allowed to rise for long periods over 30ºC during the INCUBATION period.
- Sudden temperature changes should be avoided during the incubation period to prevent condensation in the substrate.
- Once the incubation period is ended, the temperature should be lowered slowly.
- When PINHEADS start to be visible through the packs’ holes, ventilation intensity can be raised.
- During the GROWING PERIOD, relative air humidity should be kept between 82 and 87%.
- CO2 levels should be kept as low as possible, maintaining the rest of the parameters.
- Fruiting bodies should be harvested once the mushroom’s edge is straight and before it starts to break.
- The watering should be controlled, because it tends to get moisture saturated and that decreases its shelf life.
- Between different crops, a drop of temperature might be needed to stimulate new pinheading.
For fresh market, and better sold in bulk.
From May to July.
