King Oyster Mushrooms For Sale
King Oyster Mushrooms are characterized by a brown thin cap and a white thick stem that makes up the majority of the mushroom. With a mild almond-like flavor and chewy texture, king oysters can be enjoyed raw. When cooked, the mushroom becomes smooth and almost creamy texture while still remaining fairly meaty. In addition, it develops a richer, more savory flavor layer.
