1 kg King Oyster (Pleurotus eryngii) Grain Spawn

Grain Spawn is used to inoculate wheat straw or sawdust. It can be used to inoculate hardwood outdoors but it is not ideal since it will attract squirrels and other animals that will try to reach the grains as food source. It can also be used to start culture on agar or to expand more grains.

King oyster (Pleurotus eryngii) is one of the most grown and consumed oyster mushrooms in the world. It is the meaty thick stem of this mushroom that is highly sought after. The mushroom starts with small concave cap that becomes large and curls downwards as it ages. This mushroom is fun to grow, because unlike other oyster mushrooms, the king forms single mushrooms and not clusters. A single king oyster mushroom can get close to 300 grams, which is quite large. The King oyster is one of the tastiest if not the most tasty oyster mushroom and does very well on the grill.
