Portobello also known as Portabella or Portobello are a larger ‘flat’ version of the Swiss Brown. The Portabello mushroom is one of the tastiest mushrooms available. It is a wonderful mushroom to grill or roast. The caps can grow to as small as 25mm – 75 mm, to the average size of 100mm – 175mm.

Our mushroom kit grows several crops of this delicious mushroom. The first crops are the largest, with the third and subsequent crops being smaller. Great on the BBQ or as part of a meatless burger.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. How many kilograms of mushrooms can I expect these kits to yield?

A. According to manufacturer these kits usually produce about 1.5 to 2kg (16/5/14)

Q. Are these mushroom kits organic?

A. After calling the manufacturer, I was told the following. The main part of the kit (the large bag) that includes the compost and mushroom spawns is actually organic but it has not been certified so. The second smaller bag included in the mushroom kit (ie bag of peat) is not certified organic however the bag of peat is just pure peat taken straight from the ground with nothing added and so is totally natural.

Q. Can mushrooms be grown in summer?

A. In theory, you can grow mushrooms in summer, as long as you can keep the mushrooms cooler than 24 degrees most of the time and always under 30 degrees. Since this can be difficult, we generally do not recommend growing mushrooms during summer especially if you are in part of Australia with a warmer climate.

Q. Can I grow mushrooms from the same mushroom growing kit multiple times? 

A. Yes, according to the manufacturer " Most kits produce two very large crops of mushrooms and then several smaller fruiting"
