Pink Oyster Mushroom Grow-at-Home Kit
The Pink Oyster Mushrooms exhibit a stunning vibrancy, making them a captivating variety within the oyster family. When cultivated, they form clusters that resemble a delightful bouquet.
These mushrooms boast a unique flavour profile, often described as meaty, accompanied by a subtle fish-like aroma prior to cooking. When fried, they can serve as a popular substitute for bacon.
It is essential to carefully time the harvest of Pink Oysters, as their shelf life is relatively short, lasting only 48-72 hours. Embracing their beauty and savouring their flavours promptly is crucial to fully appreciate this remarkable variety.
Flavour/texture: Umami, fishy, meaty, slightly chewy
Lion’s Mane Mushroom Grow-at-Home Kit
Our Lion’s Mane variety takes the crown as our top-selling product, adored by fans far and wide. Renowned for its remarkable medicinal properties, it is often hailed as a “natural nootropic” for its cognitive-enhancing effects.
This strain is exceptionally reliable, consistently delivering impressive yields. However, it’s important to exercise caution and avoid letting the “hairs” grow excessively long, despite their visually appealing appearance.
While it may look super cool, prolonged growth negatively impacts both the flavour and shelf life of the mushrooms. To fully savour the Lion’s Mane experience, we highly recommend trying our Lion’s Mane ‘Crab Cakes’ preparation method, which promises to elevate your culinary delight.
Flavour/Texture: Mild, meaty, earthy yet clean
