FAQs re: Oyster Mushrooms

December 15, 2017

1) How many pounds of mushrooms will on of the Greenwood Farm kits provide?

----- We estimate about 3/4 of a pound, give or take, with each flush, and 2 flushes are possible.


2) What kind of mushroom is a Blue Oyster Mushroom?

----- Pleurotus ostreatus is an Oyster Mushroom; We use the blue oyster spawn because it thrives in cooler temperatures, is very versatile in cooking, and has a lovely texture. 


3) What's the shelf-life for them once they've been harvested?

----- A week, give or take a few days, in the refrigerator will be fine. We have a video on our YouTube channel demonstrating how to harvest them. 



4) Are they good raw?

----- No. Cooking deactivates anti-nutrients and unlocks the medicinal and nourishing properties. We provide many recipes in our FaceBook group "Mushroom Recipes with Greenwood Farm" and are drafting a cookbook.
