    I grow regular white mushrooms in a box kit I get from River Valley mushrooms or a garden center. Even tho they are just the white mushrooms, it’s pretty incredible how good they are that fresh. I can get 5-8# out of one box in ~2 months.

    This place has a bunch of varieties of mushroom grow kits. Pretty cool store to check out too. Weird hours tho. https://m.facebook.com/mattswildfoods/

    How much different in taste or quality between these and store bought?

    The flavor is similar but much more flavorful/intense. The texture is the big difference. I suspect because there isn’t any moisture loss, they are very dense and are almost crisp. If a person likes mushrooms, it’s well worth growing them. I’ve tried growing portabellas/crimini’s but I do prefer the whites myself.
