Good quality Oyster mushrooms should be firm, smooth and wrinkle free with bright white gills (The under side of the cap). Cap colour can vary considerably from almost white to a dark brown, this is dependent on temperature, lighting and location within the growing sheds. Oyster mushrooms fruit in large cluster of many mushrooms that all mature at the same time, for this reason size also varies considerably as there are both big and small mushrooms in each cluster. Size should not be used as an indication of quality.
Our mushrooms are available for retail in : 100g, 150g packs. Also available 250g pack for bulk orders, we do not package larger than 250g to protect mushrooms from damaging each other during transport and ensure they arrive in the best possible shape.
