Opinions on the best gourmet mushrooms
    #2837755 - 06/28/04 11:19 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I have experience on growing non gourmet mushrooms, but have never tasted any of the gourmet mushrooms. Im having a hard time deciding on what strains to grow. This question is for people who have tried them before.

My question is this. If you had your pick of 3 gourmet mushrooms (oyster, lions mane, and so on) to prepare as you wish, which ones would you take?

Also, I would like one of them to be an an oyster strain. In my research, it looks like gold oysters fruit less, while pink grows quick and so on. Whats the best overall strain of oysters?

Thanks for your input!

Try out Pleorotus Eryngii, aka King Oyster. You can get two decent flushes off straw + cottonseedmeal. Its much better tasting than the regular oyster and the different color varieties. You can make casing with the straw+cottonseed just like you would dung lovers.

Shiitake is easy to cultivate and is extremely versatile to cook with.

Grifola Frondosa is damn good as well but I have little to no knowledge concerning it's cultivation.

I agree with debian that Shiitake are excellent to work with. The taste of shiitake is what changed my mind about mushrooms and convinced me to grow them. Shiitake were the first medicinal / edible I grew.
