Judas´s ear is a gelatinous mushroom that is most commanly found on elder- Sambucus nigra near the coast in the south of sweden. Note that this is a new species for cultivation in Sweden and that it is uncertain of how far north it can grow. The mushroom is found growing on living elder and other trees which is why we recommend inoculating living trees but feel free to experiment with dead wood. Judas´s ear also occur on beech, ash, spruce, aspen and sallow which leaves room to experiment if you do not have access to elder.
Note that the right of public access (allemansrätten) does not allow for inoculation on properties other than your own or where you have been granted permission by the land owner. Inoculation of living trees will damage the tree and can kill it making it a hazard for bystanders, buildings etc. if it should fall. Inoculation in living trees is done at your own risk.
