The King Oyster mushroom (pleurotus eryngii) is considered the most delicious of the oyster mushroom varieties. This mushroom has thick flesh and is one of the largest in the genus pleurotus. It's easy to grow on most hardwoods and will grow on wheat straws as well. We recommend inoculating wheat straw with equal quantities of sawdust and grain spawn. Cultivated king oyster mushrooms grow larger then ones collected in nature.
