These are another member of the Pleurotus sp. group, although they are quite distinct from the other three types we grown. This species produces large mushrooms with hearty stems and they are often used as a meat substitute by vegans and vegetarians and in dishes such as soups and stews. When cooked they develop typical mushroom savoury (umami) flavours with a meaty texture.

The first modern cultivation was undertaken in 1993 in Japan. Now widely cultivated, its uniquely durable fruiting body makes it great for mass production and shipping, and the sheer size of the mushrooms is also impressive.
