Delta is a moderate pinner and will continue to size without opening, allowing for a high percentage of large mushrooms. While Delta is suited for a variety of growing and compost conditions, optimal productive and quality ensure that compost moister and dry weight is consistent.
Heirloom is the first new hybrid strain to be developed in the last 30 years.
