Additional Information on Maitake Mushroom
G. frondosa grows from an underground tuber-like structure known as a sclerotium, about the size of a potato. The fruiting body, occurring as large as 100cm is a cluster consisting of multiple grayish-brown caps which are often curled or spoon-shaped, with wavy margins and 2–10 cm broad. In Japan, the maitake can grow to more than 45 kilograms (100 pounds), earning this giant mushroom the title “king of mushrooms”.
