Bought it for my gardening son, as a winter project he can keep in the basement of his house. Rest of family was not impressed but I think they are all in for a nice surprise once he harvests! Thanks!

        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.

        Verified Buyer

        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.

        • Do Not Waste Money

        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.
