Grifola frondosa is a polypore mushroom that grows in clusters at the base of trees, particularly oaks. The mushroom is commonly known among English speakers as hen-of-the-woods, ram's head and sheep's head. It is typically found in late summer to early fall. In the United States' supplement market, as well as in Asian grocery stores, the mushroom is known by its Japanese name maitake (舞茸), which means "dancing mushroom".
Maitake Mushrooms are a perfect mushroom for any dish. They come in small individually wrapped clusters. Maitake mushrooms have a meaty texture with a coffee like aroma.
