Florida Oyster Mushroom

Strain: M 2125

 Pleurotus ostreatus - florida oyster mushroom

Qualities:

  • good cultivation results at temperatures above 20°C
  • numerous carpophores

Characteristics:

This summer strain forms numerous groups of primordia, distributed over the entire substrate. They develop into medium size(average 5 cm diam.), funnel-shaped fruitbodies with elongated stems. Their colour varies, with increasing light intensity and temperature, from light-beige to greyish blue. The shelf life of the mushrooms is inversely proportional to the cultivation temperature.
