The Crimini / Baby Bella mushroom is one of the tastiest mushrooms ever grown. It is very versatile in its uses. When harvested young in the button stage it is called a crimini or baby bella and can be used in the same way as the regular white button mushroom. When harvested as a mature mushroom, with the gills exposed, it is called a Portabella. One of the nicest features of the Crimini is its high solid content. The Crimini / Baby Bella is probably 50%higher solid content than the white button mushroom. This unique feature makes this mushroom a meaty and wonderful mushroom to cook with. Crimini / Baby Bella caps can grow as small as 1 inches across to as large as 2-3 inches across, with the average size being 2 inches in diameter. These mushrooms when cooked can taste similar to eating meat and is often used as a meat substitute. Our mushroom kit grows several crops of these delicious mushroom. The first two crops are usually very large almost filling the box with mushrooms. The third crop is fairly big as well. The subsequent crops after that get smaller fruiting in clusters and lesser amounts, until the mushrooms finally stop.
