  • BLEWIT SAWDUST SPAWN

    Blewits are lilac to purple mushrooms that can be found fruiting during the fall and winter months. They need a heavy frost or freeze to initiate fruiting, so Blewits will not fruit in tropical climates. They taste mild and silky, and are best sliced and seared before adding to creamy potato soups with a dash of Sherry! A great recycler of hardwood leaves and compost, we have mixed this into our kitchen compost, shredded leaves, and mulched it into our vegetable garden, where it fruits. Two flushes a few weeks apart is normal. Beautiful purple-lilac caps. Approximate weight: 5 lb.
