DescriptionColor: smooth white.Size: large depending on the number of fruits, which will vary with handling conditions.Shape: rounded, dense cap, with straight, cylindrical foot.Thick veil.Cultivation characteristicsNeeds a good quality, well-finished compost, with well-integrated moisture ranging from 68 to 72%. Thick veil.Cultivation characteristicsIt needs a good quality compost, well finished, with a well-integrated humidity ranging between 68 and 72%. It must be a selective compost, with abundant presence of Actinomycetes and Humicola.rapid growth both in incubation (12-14 days) and in the invasion of the covering soil and in the time of fructification.fructifies easily.RecommendationsThe temperature in the compost during INCUBATION should not exceed 29ºC, the optimum being 25/26ºC. At these temperatures mycelial growth is strong and vigorous, and germination will be completed in 12-14 days.It is important to choose a COVERING mixture with a good texture, with a high water retention power and porosity. It should be applied well moist, uniformly, and with a thickness of 3.5 to 4cm. In this way, the mycelium that invades the cover will form thick strands that facilitate the transport of nutrients to the fruit. The characteristics of this mycelium that invades the cover will determine the number and size of the mushrooms.during the invasion of the cover, keep the relative humidity and CO2 concentration high, ventilating only to prevent the temperature of the compost from exceeding 29ºC.The induction of FRUCTIFICATION should be carried out when the mycelium is spread throughout the soil in a uniform manner. For fruiting, the compost temperature should be lowered to 18°C.In the case of fresh market mushrooms, this should be a gentle and prolonged lowering.The CO2 concentration during fruiting should not drop below 1,100 ppm, although this will depend on the number of fruits desired.CO2 levels thereafter should be between 1,500 and 2,000 ppm.During FRUITING, it will sometimes be difficult to maintain these CO2 levels. As long as the level does not exceed 2,200 ppm, serious damage will not occur, but stem elongation will occur. Humidity should be around 85% and always below 90%. The ideal temperature for the development of mushrooms is 16/18ºC although their resistance spectrum is wider. Destination
Excellent mushroom for fresh market.
