        These grew extremely well. Two prolific crops and a few more for the third crop. They were the best mushroom we ever tasted when use in a saute.

        Comments about : Giant Portabella Mushroom Kit:

        I have purchased the button mushroom starting kit in the past and had great success. This kit (large portabella) only produced 3 small mushrooms after 4-5 weeks. I ended up throwing the kit away. I followed directions as given.

        Comments about : Giant Portabella Mushroom Kit:

        My husband got me for Christmas the Giant Portabella Mushroom box. I thought this was a unique gift since I love to garden. I will say I am a very good gardener and was excited about this product. I did EVERYTHING according to the directions. Way later than stated in directions, only one mushroom came up and not a single other one. Extremely disappointed and a huge expense. I had a guest at my house and she knew exactly what it was when she saw my box and said her daughter also got this as a gift, and she did NOT get any mushrooms. I have no idea if these were a bad batch, but this was a lot of money for nothing. Would not recommend. Also feel I should get a refund or gift certificate. I have bought many other products over the years and have never felt this way.

            Comments about : Giant Portabella Mushroom Kit:

            I received this as a gift in February from my husband as he knows I love mushrooms. I will admit I was skeptical at first that it would work. However, within 3 weeks we harvested 6 large portobella mushrooms that were about 3 - 4 inches in diameter. We marinated them and grilled them. Delicious! I am eager to see what happens for the next batch. The key is to follow the directions completely and do water everyday. My kids enjoyed seeing the mushrooms double in size each day. We kept the box in the basement where it is dark but not pitch black as we have windows on the north and south walls so some light filtered in but the box was in a place that it was not receiving any direct sunlight. We have recommended it to others and we know of one person that bought it as a gift for their daughter and son-in-law. It is a unique gift and something fun to watch grow, especially during the winter months when nothing is growing outside!
