The shiitake mushroom(Lentinula edodes ) is a fungus native to Japan. It is a popular mushroom in Asia, but has recently begun to enter the European and American markets. What makes this mushroom so interesting is that Shiitake, unlike many other popular mushrooms like Portabella, is very easy to grow.

Today, China is by far the world’s largest producer of shiitake mushrooms, supplying 80-90% of all commercially available mushrooms. Many other countries produce smaller quantities of these mushrooms, including Korea, Japan, Brazil and the United States. Worldwide, around 150,000 tons of shiitake mushrooms are produced each year.
