Yellow Oyster Mini-Farm
The spectacular Pleurotus ostreatus. Imagine clusters of hundreds of succulent, shellfish-like mushrooms that can reach the size of 18 inches in diameter. This exotic tropical strain of oyster produces canary-yellow petal-like fruiting bodies, and is one of the only mushrooms that we actually recommend eating raw. It has a citrusy, cucumber-like flavor, and is refreshing and colorful tossed into salads. It can also be made into delicious quick pickles by brining in apple cider or champagne vinegar for 15 - 20 minutes.
This Mini-Farm requires light misting to produce three to four crops over a two month period. It grows fairly well in warm climates as well. Expect one to two pounds of mushrooms with proper care. Please note that Mini-Farms given as gifts should be gifted and setup within about 7-10 days of purchase.
*We guarantee your first crop. If you follow the instructions the Mini-Farm may produce 3-4 harvests but each Mini-Farm is hand crafted and can have different results.
