Black King Oyster

Black King Oyster – (Pleurotus ostreatus/eryngi) Hybrid from Japan. It's distinguished by its darker cap, particularly when young and grown in colder temperatures. They are delicious pan-seared (like bacon!). Another great way to prepare them is to crosscut the stem and saute like scallops

$12.00

Blue Oyster

Blue Oyster - (Pleurotus ostreatus) is a beautiful mushroom with a grey/blue color and wonderful meaty texture with a sweet flavor. The stems are tough and used for stocks or powered and added to dishes for flavor and health benefits. The blue color quickly fades into a light steel-blue, grey color. Like all oysters, these mushrooms are high in protein and wonderful sautéed, grilled, or fried as a side or even the main course!  Oyster mushroom strains are known for their antiviral properties as well as cholesterol lowering abilities.

Brown Oyster

Brown Oyster - (Pleurotus ostreatus) strain is one of the best tasting in our collection and it has a softer, inflated stem that is edible! The entire mushroom can be sliced and cooked, making it a great value for consumers. This strain can grow to almost a foot across and the cap margin becomes a beautiful, wavy shape when mature. Not as sweet as the blue, this one is the best meat substitute we have, and can be oiled and grilled whole for oyster sandwiches or cubed up and threaded onto kabobs. 

THESE WILL BE READY AROUND JULY 21, 2020 (Now taking pre-orders)

King Oyster

King Oyster – (Pleurotus eryngiitaste exactly like the freshest scallops you could ever dream of and can become addictive. The entire mushroom is basically an enlarged, tender stem, that when laid on its side and sliced into thick dials, can be sautéed with butter, basil and a dash of salt to produce an amazing dish. Great mushroom for anyone with shellfish allergies that wish they could eat shrimp or other seafood, this mushroom has a hard time making it to the dinner table, where most are plucked directly from the pan when no one is looking. Cultivating this mushroom is more difficult that regular oyster mushrooms, but well worth it when you get the hang of it. It prefers pasteurized straw or sterilized sawdust grown indoors, and typically likes cooler weather, so avoid trying to grow this one in the dead of summer unless you are using well insulated grow rooms. We have not had any problem selling these for $20 per pound and are much safer than some seafood!

Lions Mane

Lions Mane – (Hericium erinaceus) are large white, shaggy mushrooms that resemble a lion’s mane as they grow.  Research has found that lion's mane may protect against dementia, reduce mild symptoms of anxiety and depression and help repair nerve damage. It also has strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immune-boosting abilities.  Lion’s mane has a flavor and texture similar to crab or lobster.  It has also been used as a chicken substitute.

Phoenix Oyster

Phoenix Oyster – (Pleurotus pulmonarius) mushrooms are the true summer oyster, that prefer warmer temperatures and can be distinguished from white-spored P.ostreatus with their beautiful lilac colored spore-prints. Most strains have all white fruitbodies, and this one is no exception. This strain was originally isolated from the ID tables at Oconee State Park, South Carolina growing out of a Virginia Pine branch. It will fruit on conifer wood, but the mushrooms are small. It prefers to fruit on hardwoods or can be grown on pasteurized agricultural waste, such as straw or cotton. This culture is great for mycoremediation projects and can also convert piles of conifer mulch and stumps into soil , and has shown high activity in breaking down herbicides. This mushroom is a treat to eat, has a soft, velvety and sweet flavor reminiscent of anise and is super easy to grow during the warmer months of the year!
