Pleurotus dryinus - edible?
    #1739176 - 07/22/03 08:19 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)



I found this guy last week, on an oak in CT. I picked it and plan to clone it tonight.

It is 7" in diameter and must weigh 5 oz. It smells good, and seems meaty enough, though only one of my guidebooks (Barron, Mushrooms of Northeast NA) calls it edible. All the others say "too tough" to eat. Hah! I'm gonna try it anyway, then if its good, I can grow more of the monsters!

I ate it and surprisingly it was very good. You just have to slice it thinly because of its toughness.
Culture is quite strange as it forms tan to brown arthrospores. You might exchange it for contamination. ( Pleurotus dryinus )
Mine looked like this:

I tossed it because I thought it's contamn.

Thanks for the tip. I'll be sure to look out of for that when I examine mine.
