Gourmet Mushroom Products (GMHP) is proud to announce that over two and a half million visitors have visited the GMHP web site (http://www.gmushrooms.com) which features the Morel Habitat Kit. With the price of dried morels up to $99 for 4 ounces and Fresh morels up to $50 - $60 per pound this year, it is no wonder that people want to establish their own back yard Morel Habitat.
The Morel Habitat Kit was developed so everyone could enjoy growing their own morels, outdoors, in their own back yard and have a personal supply of fresh morel mushrooms to eat in the spring. The Morel Habitat can supply an individual with pounds of morel mushrooms in a garden area as small as 4 - 5 sq. ft. Morel Habitats are perennial and may be started anytime your soil is workable. Morel Habitats may be started in any type of soil and have produced morel mushrooms in all areas of the United States that have a definite transition from winter to summer. Customers have found morels in their Habitats 23 years after they were established! The Morel Habitat is ecologically sound and actually allows you to improve the environment by recycling biodegradable material instead of adding it to already overburdened land and sea sites. Everybody with a yard has most or all of the materials needed to create and maintain the Morel Habitat. Complete instructions for preparing and maintaining your Morel Habitat are included.
Many states require people to obtain a Morels Collecting permit and in areas of Washington State, there may be a fee just to hunt morels: “A 4-day permit costs $20, a 30-day permit is $50 and a season permit is $100… Permits must be in the harvester’s possession when collecting mushrooms.”
The GMHP web site offers three ways of growing organic, delicious, healthy, gourmet mushrooms at home:
For over 24 years GMHP has been bringing fresh gourmet mushrooms kits into homes across the country. Mushroom Kits are the perfect gift for mushroom lovers of all ages. Doug Oster of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said of GMHP’s kits: “Mushroom kits yield bumper crop in just a few days. I was surprised to find that one of the kits had grown full-sized mushrooms. They were so big that the log toppled off the mantel.” GMHP’s mushrooms logs are produced with a 100% plant based substrate, easy to use and guaranteed to produce. GMHP’s mushroom logs are specifically designed for in-home use, but produce the same top-quality fresh gourmet mushrooms used at many of the country’s finest restaurants. Choose from Shiitake, Blue Oyster, Sonoma Brown Oyster, Trumpet Royale or the exotic Pom Pom Blanc (Hericium) Kit. Gourmet Mushroom Kits provide fresh, delicious, exotic mushrooms in your home or office - without the day hike or identification books!

Spring is the time to plug logs & stumps with our Mushroom Plug Spawn which is available for affordable, sustainable back yard cultivation of hardy gourmet and medicinal mushroom species: Shiitake, Maitake (Hen-of-the-Woods), Hericium (Lion’s Mane), Ganoderma (Reishi), Blue Oyster, and Sonoma Brown Oyster. Plug Spawn lets you cultivate mushrooms by inoculating logs with grooved birch plugs fully colonized by pure mushroom mycelium. Log cultivation is usually done with logs 4 - 6 inches in diameter with a length of 3 to 4 feet and each log can produce mushrooms for up to four years. Oak is particularly good for the cultivation of most mushrooms though many other species work well also: poplar, aspen, sugar maple, willow, alder and birch, among others.
All Components of GMHP Mushroom Kits are Recyclable as are all materials used to pack & ship the kits. Log & Plug Mushroom Spawn Certified 100% Organic by Quality Assurance International.
