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.

5 star Gourmet LC & 5 Star Service

Ordered a dozen different gourmet LC’s. The syringes were full of healthy mycelium and neatly labeled.
I put each one on agar, they all produced vigorous clean mycelium. Highly recommend.

Paid via cash in mail which was a great discount and freebies. Communication with MMM was quick and professional. His website is easy to navigate and clearly states his policies, shipping, payments, communication, etc. Those web pages should answer nearly all questions. I will be a returning customer in the future.

Still in my collection 2 years later

Great all around. Genetics are very good. Great beginner strain since so aggressive, and taste delicious.

Great Response Time

Quick responses and fast shipping! Great prices and easy to work with!
