Grow Mushrooms Under Your Raspberries!

Updated: Aug 22, 2023

by Jeannie Bartlett

The last two springs I’ve inoculated different areas of my raspberry patch and under my fruit trees with winecap mushroom spawn, and the double-harvest sure has been fun. In early spring I spread clean hardwood wood chips through my raspberry bed and under my fruit trees, 2-3” thick. Then I scatter handfuls of winecap sawdust spawn over the wood chips, and lay on another inch of chips. Finally, I water the whole thing until it’s moist throughout, and wait! The mushrooms thrive in the cool shade of the berries and trees. I’ve probably had four harvests now from the areas I inoculated in 2018. As with any new food, please try homegrown mushrooms in moderation initially. Contact us for full instructions.
