Shiitake Mushrooms - varieties?

ElsieB | Mar 3, 2013 12:08 PM

I find shiitake mushrooms at my natural foods store and also at a gourmet market that are very flat and open and the caps are thin. Then I find shiitake mushrooms at the chinese markets that are much beefier and have sort of rough skin on the top. Are there different varieties of shitakes? Is one preferable to the other?
