Hypsizygus tessulatus is an oyster-like mushroom with a superior flavor and texture. It is easy to grow, very tasty and lacks the extremely high spore loads associated with other oyster species. There is some evidence of medicinal anti-tumor activity.

As with all oyster mushrooms, this species is very sensitive to high CO2 levels. Without proper air exchange the mushrooms will grow with reduced caps and elongated stems. For best texture and flavor, harvest the mushrooms before the cap flattens out.

*Note: Culture supplied as living mycelium in a test tube slant. Culture can be stored under refrigeration for several months. Slants are best suited for long distance travel, international shipments, or long term culture storage. To ensure freshness of culture, slant requests are made to order, please allow 2-4 weeks for processing and shipment.
