    Amazing value!

    Loved the mushrooms: Fresh, gorgeous and ready to use. I used them on their own — seared like scallops, and in a stir fry. Deeply satisfying! Ordering and pickup were both easy and efficient, with generous advice offered. I look forward to repeat orders.

    Enjoyed my whole experience with JCB Gourmet mushrooms, from ordering to ingesting. Ordering was quick and easy and excellent communication with John.
    Fun to watch grow. Definitely will order again.

    Delicious

    This is my first experience growing mushrooms and worried when I read that these were more difficult than the other varieties. My basement floor was 2 degrees warmer than recommended and after 3 weeks I was beginning to think that it was a bust. Then it happened. We got 2 huge clusters within a few days and more on the way. These are absolutely excellent mushrooms.
