When cooked crispy they take on a strong nutty flavor that is quite delicious, and taste similar to cashews. This mushroom also thrives in higher temperatures compared to most other oyster mushrooms. Also the more light introduced, the more yellow-golden color the caps will become. This mushrooms grows on a wide range of substrates including straw (wheat,rye,oat,rice, and barley straw), corn, coffee grounds, banana waste, most hardwoods and hardwood by-products like sawdust and paper, compost and much more. This mushroom is becoming more popular by chefs for it’s beautiful appearance and bold nutty flavor.
