Pleurotus ostreatus

Winter Oyster Mushroom

Strain: M 2153

 

Trumps:

  • good cultivation results at temperatures till 20°C
  • rapid production of numerous carpophores

Characteristics:

This strain is an interesting alternative to regular Winter Oyster Mushroom strains when a rapid production is requested.  Numerous groups of primordia appear a few days after the incubation period is finished. The diam. of the carpophores, the fruitbody- quality and the intensity of the colour are inversely proportional to the cultivation temperature.
