The genotypes of Hericium erinaceus He-101, He-102, He-104, He-105, He-107, He-108, He-109, and growing media made of wheat straw+20% wheat bran (GM1) and poplarsawdust+20% wheat bran (GM2) were studied for spawn run, harvestings, numbers, yield, biological efficiency, cropping period, and average fruit body weight. The spawn run of He-108 was completed within a minimum of 24 and 26 days on GM 1&2, respectively, however, early harvesting of He-101 was recorded within 42 (GM1) and 43 days (GM2) after spawning. He- 104  resulted highest 205.7 g yield /1.5 kg GM 1 (31.65% BE) with 11 highest average numbers of mushroom /1.5 kg GM1 and 19.22 g highest average fruit body weight with maximum 5 harvestings and 94 days of total cropping period. The performance of GM1 was found superior to GM 2. The GM1 led to the shortest duration of spawn run (27 days), the highest number of harvestings (3), the highest number of fruits (7/bag), the highest yield (115 g/bag), and the highest  BE (17.66%) on paired ‘t’ test. While the short-duration crop of 66 days was recorded in GM2 with an incomplete spawn run.
