Location and Origin

The Reishi is a woody fungus that grows mainly on the trunks of decaying wild plums, sometimes on those of oak or hemlock. Very rare in the wild, it grows exclusively in mountains, in deep forests. Nowadays, it is also grown in an artificial environment.

History of Reishi

This fungus has enjoyed an unusual reputation in Asia for over 2,000 years. It is mentioned in the oldest Chinese Pharmacopoeia (the classical Seng Nong herbarium – published in 56 before the Common Era) and it is believed that Asians knew the Reishi for centuries, even millennials before dated.

The Reishi is all the more appreciated as it is extremely rare in the wild. It indeed grows only in deep mountainous forests, usually on the trunks of decaying plums, and only 2 or 3 per 10 000 dead plum trees are found. Traditionally, 6 different varieties of Reishi, according to the color are distinguished (red, purple, blue, yellow, black or white). These color differences are due to specific growth conditions within the species. It seems the amateurs of Reishi prefer the Red.
