The Crimini or 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 Portabellini or Portabella. One of the nicest features of the Crimini is its rich flavor. The Crimini Baby Bella has a very high solid content and has probably twice the solid content of the white button mushroom. This unique feature makes this mushroom a meaty and flavorful mushroom to cook with. The Crimini Baby Bella caps can grow as small as 1-2 inches across to as large as 2-3 inches across, with the average size being 2 inches in diameter. These thick caps 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. 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.
