King Oyster mushrooms are native to Mediterranean regions of Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa and are the largest mushroom in the oyster family.
The distinctive shape of the King Oyster mushroom lends itself to a variety of innovative cooking techniques, including searing them sliced in the fashion of scallops. When freshly picked and uncooked, King Oysters are almost tasteless and have very little scent to them, but when cooked, they deliver an incredible umami flavor and a meaty texture.
This kit is designed to help you learn to grow mushrooms at home without any specialized equipment. They are fairly easy to work with and include instructions for growing them on a bag of precooked rice at home or a bucket of straw if you’d like to grow a lot of them.
