Oyster is a wonderful eating mushroom, which grows fast and fruits several crops of mushrooms. These mushrooms are silver gray in color if ample light is present, and off-white in color if grown in dim light. Oyster mushrooms are popular for cooking, especially in stir fry or sauté since the cap is thin and cooks quickly. They have a delicate, mild flavor and velvety texture. They are easy to grow and store well in the refrigerator. Mushroom Growing Kit contains a bag of inoculated mushroom compost and instructions. All you add is water!
