This species of oyster is prized for its thick stems which are a great meat substitute (hence the name “Kings”). Kings are best when top fruited and require relatively cold temps. They tend to produce a single large flush, but can produce a second flush. A great mushroom for those trying to expand their culinary library options.
Fruits best between 55-65°F.
A top fruiting species.
