Pleurotus purpureo-olivaceus Mushroom Spawn 1 kg

NZ Cultures

  • Product Description
  • Reviews

I have cultured a few Pleurotus purpureo-olivaceus but this one is a one in a million. Normally this mushroom is very small, but this one I found at the end of a friend's driveway is like no other. It grows massive mushrooms and is very closely related to Pleurotus australis. I don't know how it grows because I have never managed to fruit it.

The first person to fruit it in captivity may be the first in history. I will give the first person to fruit it $100 Store voucher. Once again it is a slow-growing hyphae and takes 1.5 months to colonize sawdust bags. This is a real challenge for the advanced grower. Our cultures are DNA sequenced by Landcare NZ. 

The taste is as good as Pleurotus australis but it does not have that hard texture it is softer like a grey oyster mushroom. But tastes 1000x better than that.

1kg mushroom spawn, the bag is so big being oats it looks like 1.5kg 

You will not believe how fast our genetics move and how much you will harvest. They will never get tired as they have been cryogenically frozen to preserve their original state. Every couple of years we will wind back the clock and start again. This will keep our genetics as fresh as the day they were first cultured. No other supplier in NZ can offer you such high-quality genetics. 

NZ Cultures genetics are not imported and do not endanger our endemic mushrooms, in fact, they grow in harmony with nature helping to preserve New Zealand's genetics for future generations.
