NEW – Snow Oyster Mushroom Grow Kit


Snow oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus) — also called winter oyster — 

is a popular firm oyster variety. They have sweeter flavor and aroma than other oysters and hold their shape and texture when cooked. (The taste of snow oyster mushrooms is very mild, and some even describe it as slightly woody and earthy.) Oyster mushrooms are a great mushroom for beginners. They colonize quickly and are reliable producers. They are also a cold weather loving strain that tend to fruit in the cooler months.

Edibility & Taste

Meaty and sweet.  Snow Oysters can easily replace button mushrooms in most recipes and pair well with many cuisines and flavors. Like all oyster mushrooms, they retain water and may develop a viscous texture when undercooked. If you prefer a firm or dryer texture, continue to cook them until their liquid has reduced and cooked off and they begin to brown.
