Pearl Oyster Mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus) are the “standard” archetypal Oyster mushroom, widely grown all over the world.
Depending on growing conditions, Pearly Oysters can vary in coloration from white to gray and even brown, but generally they are creamy-white.
Like most Oysters they have a velvety cap and small firm stems. The taste is mild and the texture is pleasantly chewy.
Blue Oyster Mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreautus var. columbinus) grow in large clusters and take on the typical shelf like shape of the oyster species. The mushroom clusters start out with deep blue coloring and eventually turn grey as they mature.
The fruit is usually thick and meaty and very versatile for many culinary uses, such as sauteing, frying, and baking.
Mushrooms will keep longer if handled delicately and stored in paper bags.
Golden Oyster (Pleurotus citrinopileatus) Mushrooms are a warm weather strain that grows in a small cluster and looks like a bouquet of yellow flowers.
The fruits are smaller than other oyster mushrooms and quite delicate.
They should be consumed within 1-2 days of purchase as they do not store long.
King Oyster Mushrooms (Pleurotus eryngii ) are unique among oysters in that the stem is highly desired for culinary uses.
Unlike other oyster varieties, the King Oyster doesn’t usually produce a shelf like formation, but instead produces a mushroom with a round cap and a defined stem.
King Oyster mushrooms have a thick meaty texture and and they keep longer in the refrigerator than other oyster mushrooms.
Pink Oyster Mushrooms (Pleurotus d'jamour), the Mushrooms of Love, are vibrantly pink when young, and begin to fade as they mature.
Pink Oysters do not actually have stems, but their caps, which often look like flower petals, twist into firm ends, that should be removed before cooking.
Sauteing Pink Oyster mushrooms changes their color to salmon. Like Golden Oysters their shelf-life is short, please consume within 1-2 days.
Italian Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus pulminarius) this is a thicker and meatier oyster mushroom with caps that can grow quite large.
Italian Oysters are not as delicate as their cousins, but have the same velvety and chewy texture.
Italian Oysters have a longer shelf life than Blues, Pinks, and Golden Oysters.
Italian Oysters are my personal favorites due to their versatility, incredibly spongy texture, and good shelf life.
The Chestnut mushroom (Pholiota Adiposa), is a wood loving mushroom that forms dense clusters of beautiful, brown-orange gilled mushrooms with a slightly shaggy cap.
It can be mistaken for the Baby Bella or Crimini mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) because of their shape and color. However, Chestnut Mushrooms are not related to Portabellas or White button mushrooms which are grown in composted manure, while Chestnuts are grown in sawdust.
This mushroom has a great texture and maintains its shape well even after cooking. It has a mild, earthy and nutty flavor. It excels in miso and other brothy soups, in stir fry, in Spaghetti sauce, as a pizza topping and so much more, retaining a pleasantly crunchy, chewy texture, as well as its’ shape and appearance.
We care about healthy, fresh, safe, and local food!
