Scientific Name: Pleurotus ostreatus


Common Names: Pink Oyster, Salmon Oyster, Strawberry Oyster, Flamingo Mushroom, Takiiro Hiratake, Tabang Ngunggut


Description:  A medium, tender, delicious mushroom with a vibrant pink cap, gills, and stem, this cultivar forms large cluster bouquets of mushrooms.  Pink oyster and other P. ostreatus species are some of the easiest to grow because they fruit using many substrates over a wide range of temperatures:  Hardwood, straw, and coffee grinds can produce huge yields of beautiful fruitbodies.  Pink Oyster is the best choice for the beginner in the heat of the summer or high temperature grow spaces.  Pink Oyster will spread aggressively through the summer, but is not able to survive the Canadian winter as a perennial outdoor mushroom.
