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 bright pink fruiting bodies that look more like coral or rose petals than mushrooms. A high iron content gives this mushroom its vivid color and subsequent meaty taste. The flavor is so meaty, in fact, that it can be used as a substitute -- the perfect choice for vegetarians. This Mini-Farm requires light misting to produce three to four crops over a two-month period. Expect one to two pounds of mushrooms with proper care. Please note that Mini-Farms given as gifts should be gifted and set up 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 handcrafted and can have different results.
