Aspen Oyster Pleurotus Populinus
Smell: Anise like
Spore Print: White
Color: White to Tan
Mountainous areas in Aspen groves. Look on dead trees, stumps and even up high.
Grows in clusters on aspen and other poplars such as cottonwood. Gills run down the stem. White, Tan or Brown at full maturity. Oysters have a very unique smell that is hard to describe. They need to be collected when very fresh if they are to be eaten. They get infested with bugs rather quickly. Young specimens are a choice edible. This is also one of the easiest mushrooms to cultivate. If you have ever bought fresh oysters from the supermarket you should be able to identify these right away. This is one of the best species for the table in my opinion. At night they glow in the dark.
Widely distributed in northern and montane North America, the Aspen oyster is named after the tree it is typically found on, the quaking aspen. It is an edible mushroom with a mild taste. It is known to be high in protein & fibre, iron, zinc, potassium, phosphorus & selenium, calcium, folic acid, vitamins B1, B3, B5 & B12, vitamin C & vitamin D. What a list!
Pleurotus populinus grows in shelf like clusters on dead and living wood of populus species, causing white rot. The color ranges from ivory white to pinkish buff to orange-grey. It will grow in the spring, summer and fall and enjoys a reputation of being easy to grow. Being that it is incredibly nutritious and has been shown to have medicinal benefits, the Aspen Oyster is a great mushroom to add to your collection.
The liquid culture syringes are between 10 and 12cc and are ready to inject to your substrate of choice such as sterilized rye berries.
