When to Harvest cakes with connected shrooms?
    #1498026 - 04/27/03 03:51 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I have a cake that has some shrooms that are at full veil opening cause i was away and some that are still growing not fullly grown however they all seem to be connected in the same spot or clump should i wait to harvest or can i just pull out the finished ones?

You actually could do either. But when you have a cluster like that, people often suggest harvesting them as a group (maybe the idea behind that is to minimize the "trauma" to that one little area of the cake).......so, you could allow the ones that haven't matured a few more hours to grow, then pull the whole cluster. Besides, they look really cool when you pick them that way.......

personally, i pick each mushroom only as it is ready.

the extra care taken in harvesting pays dividends in harvest weight, not only now (if you're careful, you can keep the others attached, and they'll keep growing) but later, by protecting the fragile 2nd flush pins which may be right there, or just under the surface.

Shirley,

I kind of like that approach....It's like the Mogan-David Wine theme,

"I will pick no mushroom before its time."
