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 sauté like scallops.

Delicate and savory.

 

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.
-Edibility and Taste: Sweet and meaty.

 

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. 
-Edibility and Taste: Meaty and Earthy.

 

Chestnut – (Pholiota adiposa) this wonderful clustering mushroom forms dense clusters of beautiful, dark orange gilled mushrooms with a slightly shaggy cap. The entire mushroom is edible with a nutty flavor and the texture is a little crunchy when flash sautéed.
-Edibility and Taste: Nutty in flavor and having a crispy texture.

 

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, and are much safer than some seafood!
-Edibility and Taste: Like scallops with butter and basil, dash of salt.

 

Lions Mane – (Hericium erinaceus) are large white, shaggy mushrooms that resemble a lion’s mane as they grow. Lion’s mane mushrooms (Hericium erinaceus) are unlike anything else in the mushroom world, with their incredible cascading, icicle-like shape. In the wild, it can almost look like coral escaped the ocean and latched onto a tree. Beyond its unusual appearance lies a delectable treat, with a sweet, meaty crab-like flavor.. Lion’s mane has a flavor and texture similar to crab or lobster. It has also been used as a chicken substitute.
-Edibility and Taste: Sweet and savory, with a stringy texture.

 

Pearl Oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus is a beautiful mushroom with a beautiful delicate pearl coloration and wonderful meaty texture with a sweet flavor. This strain is similar to blue oysters but with a more pronounced stem.  The stems are tough and used for stocks or powered and added to dishes for flavor and health benefits.  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.
