Blewit (Lepista nuda)

Lepista nuda, commonly known as Blewit is an edible mushroom native to Europe and North America but can now increasingly be found in Australia where it was introduced. Its color ranges from lilac to purple-pink that darkens as it ages. Some North American species will have a duller color tending more towards tan, but will still have purplish tones on the stem and gills. It has a standard mushroom shape with a simple cap and a thick, short stem. Blewits have a strong flavor and should be cooked before eating. They have a very distinctive odor that has been likened to that of frozen orange juice. Blewit has a long fruiting season during the cooler months of september until freeze up. It typically takes more than a growing season to establish so it is best to have it in a semi-permanent location. For same season fruiting, it should be planted in early spring, however it can be planted in spring, fall or even winter in milder climates. Layered hardwood and pine needle mixed with layers of leaves and organic matter are ideal for growing Blewit. Out-Grow is proud to present a full line of edible and medicinal mushroom cultures. Economically priced so that everyone can enjoy the wonderful hobby and benefits of mushroom cultivation. Our cultures are made by experts and are 100% clean and viable. The liquid culture syringes are between 10 and 12cc and are ready to inject to your substrate of choice such as sterilized rye berries. .
