Also known as King Trumpet or King Oyster.

King Trumpets are definitely the best tasting and best textured of the Oyster mushrooms. While the stem of most Oyster mushrooms tend to be tough and leathery, the King Trumpet is firm, pleasantly chewy with a sweet nutty flavor.

It's easy to fruit on hardwoods. My substrate is a mix of Oak sawdust, chips and rice bran. This mushroom may grow quite large, up to 7 inches long but is generally harvested at a smaller size. It is the only Oyster species that ships well and has an extended shelf-life.

Fruiting was done in an open air greenhouse. I usually get two crops, 14 days apart.
Temps are kept around 60 degrees F. with humidity staying around 90%.

I only have the Giant white version that has a reduced cap. I like the look of yours better. It looks closer to the wild type.

But the white ones can get freakishly huge with stems bigger around than my wrist. You can slice them into medalion steaks. My favorite oyster by far.

I once fruited some on cased birdseed.

Excellent thread waylit...Good to see people who are into edibles.

I've tried eating the king oysters before....purchased them at an asian food store. I never tried them prior, so I figured what the hell. I really hated them. It was like eating a chewy sponge. I don't know...I think the quality of their mushrooms were shitty as always, so it could have been that.

Either way, Great thread...they look beautiful.
