Taming the Wild Morel Mushroom - Celebrating 20 Years of Home Morel Cultivation

Share Article

Before Gourmet Mushroom Home Products (GMHP) introduced its Morel Habitat Kit 20 years ago, the only way to enjoy the May treasure of the Morel mushroom was to trek through forests and fields hoping to find this elusive and delectable mushroom. This spring marks the 20th anniversary of GMHP's Morel Habitat Kit, a 100% organic way to cultivate a personal supply of Morel Mushrooms in your own backyard. The Morel Mushroom Kits are amazingly simple to cultivate, fun, and have countless environmental benefits. After 20 years of satisfied customers, GMHP have proved that the elusive Morel Mushroom can in fact, be tamed.

Morel Mushroom Habitat

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.

The Morel Mushroom is know by many names: Morchella, Merkel, Morrel, Sponge Mushroom, Dry Land Fish, Pine Cone Mushroom, Molly Moochers, Hickory Chicks… but no matter what you call them, each May avid morel hunters struck by morel madness drive and hike for hours to fields and forests across the United States in hopes of finding the elusive, tantalizing, and delicious morel mushroom.

Since 1989, Gourmet Mushroom Products (GMHP) has produced the Morel Habitat Kit™ - the very first way that people were able to grow top quality morel mushrooms in their very own backyard.

This spring GMHP is proud to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of its Morel Habitat Kit™. The earth friendly, environmentally sustainable and certified organic Morel Habitat Kit™ was developed so that morel enthusiasts across the U.S. could put away their hiking boots and learn to cultivate their own personal supply of morels, Morchella esculenta, with the same flavor and quality as morels found in the wild.

Katrina M. says: "When our morels come up in our backyard, it's like an Easter egg hunt! The whole family enjoys looking for - then eating them!"

For two decades GMHP has proudly claimed: "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."

The Morel Habitat can produce pounds of morels in a garden area as small as 4 - 5 sq. ft. A typical Morel Habitat can be maintained with the biodegradable kitchen waste produced by a family of two, so everybody with a yard has most of the materials needed to create and maintain their very own Morel Habitat. Thorough instructions for preparing and maintaining your Morel Habitat are included.

The Morel Habitat Kit™ is perennial and may be started any time your soil is workable - Spring, Summer, Fall and even Winter in areas with a mild climate. Morel Habitats may be started in any type of soil and have produced morels in all areas of the United States that have a definite transition into spring. Our unique morel strain arrives in a kit ready to seed a 4-16 sq. foot area. Crop size may fluctuate from year to year, but customers have found morels in their Habitats 19 years after they were established!

Every component of GMHP's Mushroom Kits is recyclable, including all materials used to pack & ship the kits. Morel Habitat Spawn is certified 100% organic by Quality Assurance International.
