Mainland Pleurotus pulmonarius #20 Native Grain Spawn 1kg

NZ Cultures


  • Product Description
  • Reviews

This is the best example after researching and growing out about 20 observations of P. pulmonarius from farms around NZ. It actually harvests more than #11 the rare one but does not keep as long in the fridge. This one is the most common mushroom on the mainland of New Zealand available growing on cabbage trees. It has a tiger affect and I can assure you it is a complete nutter.

Pleurotus pulmonarius culture #20

DNA Verified by Landcare NZ and stored in the international collection of microorganisms of plant pathogens using cryogenics. 

This mushroom spawn will keep for an extremely long time in your house fridge.  Great to keep a bag in case of an emergency.

Please do not grow native mushroom spawn around imported mushroom spawn it is clear this species is complex so there may be some more new names for these natives coming soon. 

The imported mushroom is completely different but as they are all in the same Pleurotus pulmonarius clade they are interfertile with each other. Genetic pollution is no joke and has taken over many endemic species of NZ, this type of threat can lead to effectively breeding out our own species. If we all play a helping hand then maybe we can preserve these genetics for future generations.

Quality spawn, tasty mushrooms

I really enjoyed growing this variety. The spawn itself was some of the nicest I’ve handled - clean, great smelling & well colonised. It’s a fast grower, the bags (straw) started pinning after 17 days & produced three beautiful flushes. My mum hates oyster mushrooms, yet she absolutely loved these. I would definitely grow #20 again, it is an excellent eating mushroom that is easy to grow, has a good yield & very attractive form.
