Pleurotus ostreatus var “Black Pearl”- This is a relatively new variety of oyster which is a cross between an Asian and European Pleurotus ostreatus. In higher CO2 conditions the stems become meaty and thick like a king oyster (see images below); however, this variety is much easier to fruit than king oyster. See what phenotypes you get and share with us!

Black Pearl Oyster fruits best between 60-70°F but can fruit in the 50’s.

I keep coming back...

MMM is my favorite shop to buy from for a few reasons. The customer service is incredible, the quality of the products are unbeatable, and the selection is diverse. I've never had anything other than a great experience. I've recommended MMM to many friends and I'll definitely be back again and again.

Great LC and overall service

Received my black pearl oyster LC and as always am impressed with the product and the customer service. Clean, packaged well and prompt. Super easy

Excellent Culture

This was my first time ordering any sort of mushroom culture and I don't think I will go anywhere else. I ordered this along with a few other strains of gourmet mushrooms. 2 weeks after inoculation I am already seeing a substantial amount of mycelium and looks like it may be ready for fruiting in another couple of weeks. Order came very discreet and was shipped out promptly. I even received 2 free syringes of culture with my order!

Loved Everything!

Great product and excellent service! Loved the freebie! The cash by mail worked perfectly well.
