Florida mushrooms I didn’t know are planted and harvested in a town located less than an hour from my own home here in Central Florida. They come from Zellwood, under the Monterey label. And from other farms located in Apopka and South Florida too. Florida mushrooms are available in different varieties, including conventional and organic offerings.

Year round you will find white and brown mushrooms. Like portabellas and baby bellas. And seasonally the specialty mushroom varieties. Like  Shiitake, King Trumpet, Enoki, Beech and Maitake. I have been purchasing this mushrooms for the longest time and I didn’t figured out those came from my very own state.

Mushrooms have nutritional value as they contain vitamin D which helps our body to absorb calcium. This is very important for us women to have strong bones. So if you do not get enough sunlight to help your own body generate vitamin D naturally make sure to add mushrooms into your diet. Are delicious, easy to cook and economic.

Mushrooms unlike any other produce do not have seeds. They grow from microscopic spores called fungi. I have learned that a mature mushroom will drop as many as 16 billion spores. Those are used to inoculate grains or seeds to produce a product called spawn (equivalent of a mushroom “seed”). And that is the begining of the mushroom lifecycle. Fascinating, isn’t it? Now I want to create my own mushroom farm at home. Buying a mushroom farm kit in a box to learn the process. I love gardening so growing mushrooms I think will be something I could get passionate about.

We are huge mushroom lovers. In fact, I don’t remember a time when we didn’t have some kind of mushroom in the fridge, ready for some dish. They would be great in fajitas because they are so meaty tasting.

We love grilled vegetable fajita and being a vegetarian, mushrooms are one of our meatless options. I am not a big fan of mushrooms, but my boys love them. They will love these fajitas.
