Type of Mushrooms in this kit

Pleurotus citrinopileatus: This tropical Golden Oyster strain thrives in warm weather. It produces beautiful clusters with yellow caps that are a favorite at farmers' markets.  

Golden Oysters can easily replace button mushrooms in most recipes and pair well with many cuisines and flavors. Like all Oyster mushrooms, they retain water and may develop a viscous texture when undercooked. If you prefer a firm or dryer texture, continue to cook Golden Oysters until their liquid has reduced and cooked off and they begin to brown. Golden Oyster mushrooms develop a cashew-like flavor when cooked to a slightly crispy texture. 

Medium to large in size with caps averaging 5-20 centimeters in diameter and are found in shelf-like clusters of five to six mushrooms. The smooth, thick caps are semi-circular or fan-shaped and range in color from cream-beige to bright yellow-gold. The cap is also finely lined and has wavy and undulating edges when mature. Underneath the cap, there are many soft, short, white gills closely aligned to one another and the short, ivory stem averages 1-7 centimeters in length. Golden Oyster mushrooms have a distinct aroma with seafood undertones and are velvety and tender with a mild, faintly sweet flavor.
