Pleurotus djamor, commonly known as the pink oyster mushroom, is a species of fungus in the family Pleurotaceae
described as meaty and fishy. Just like most it is quite umami. Its texture is both meaty and chewy. When fried until crispy, it resembles bacon or even ham. However, when it is raw, it has a sour taste.
The pink oyster mushroom, unsurprisingly has a pink color. When cooked, however, the color quickly fades. It has a curly cap which is 2 – 5 cm in diameter. The caps are also quite thin. The stem is very short or even non existent.
The reason why it is very rare to find in supermarkets is that it has a shelf life of only about a day. Since it is only harvested from spring to fall, it is only available during that time.
There is a wide array of Oyster mushroom types cultivated for their high efficiency and good reliability and these are like coded by colour from pearls, pinks and yellow oysters of warmer climate to more darker colours of blues, browns and greys as more cooler template lovers.
Growing mushrooms for the first time could be a little challenge, but choosing Oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) for your first cultivation is the best first step you can take towards the mushroom cultivation because it only needs little attention once initiated fruiting and will grow in many harsh conditions, being a very easy to grow species would withstand missing a watering or two and a wider temperature range.
We prepare our fruiting bags with sterilised Master Mix substrate of 50/50% Oak pellets and Soy Hulls pellets, inoculate and incubate them to the colonised/fruiting stage, when we send them to you together with our special design of the MycoGrowBox, which eliminate the need of a plastic tent and will rise the success rate of cultivation. ..by design can be adapted for many other mushroom fruitings, recycled and reused.
