North Spore's Golden Oyster Mushrooms are aromatic, delicate, and delicious. They also have a hint of nuttiness (similar to cashews) and are beloved by chefs for their texture and flavor. The perfect panko-fried fare, they also pair perfectly with pasta, risotto, noodle stir frys, and more. (We especially love adding them to warm creamy soups, frittatas, tacos, and even quiche!)
Our USDA-certified organic golden oyster mushroom kits are reliable producers and tend to yield large flushes of beautiful bright yellow to deep golden mushrooms when given adequate humidity. With continued proper care, you should be able to get multiple flushes. (We 100% guarantee your first flush of mushrooms, but hope you'll try for 2 or 3!)
That's not mold, it's mycelium!
Your kit includes an amended sawdust block fully colonized with mushroom mycelium. It may appear covered with a soft, white, mold-like substance - that's the mushroom mycelium! It is completely normal. The mycelium of some species is more prominent than others.
