Frequently Bought Together

Storage and Shelf-Life

Lion’s mane mushrooms are best enjoyed on day of purchase, but when stored correctly in the fridge, they will keep for 3-5 days.

TIP: Mushrooms should always be stored in paper bags, ideally in the bottom of the fridge in the vegetable drawer where it’s slightly warmer than the rest of the fridge. To stop your mushrooms drying out, you can place a damp paper towel in the paper bag with the mushrooms.

Mushrooms should never be stored in plastic bags or containers where condensation can rapidly deteriorate the flesh of the mushroom causing them to rot and spoil quickly.
