Also called Graue Gans in German, Coquille En Bouquet in French, Grifola Kurchavaya in Russian
and Fongo Gato in Italian.
No matter what you call these - they are much sought after worldwide.
35 years of picking wild fungi and these are still the number one seller.
For those that are reticent about having fresh mushrooms shipped in the mail, either due to additional shipping costs or time in transit, dehydrated Maitake is an alternative.

Dehydrated Maitake sold by me on this site are 'current year' mushrooms. That is why the availability is only from September to November.
Although dried Maitake will last several years when stored in cool, dry dark area I choose not to store quantities.
I pick the mushrooms, as found each year, dehydrate enough based on prior years sales records and/or incoming orders and stop there.
Also, my dried Maitake consist of only the best part of the leaflets. There is no waste.
