Pleurotus Ostreatus

Further designations: Austern-Seitling, Austernpilz, Kalbfleischpilz, Oyster Mushroom, Ping Gu, Hiratake

The almost everywhere on our planet growing oyster mushroom owes its high awareness to the fact that he is the world's most important edible mushroom before the button mushroom.
In Central Europe, the Pleurotus ostreatus grows predominantly on the trunks or thick branches of hardwoods, mainly on beech trees. It is cultivated on different substrates, mainly on straw.
Thanks to its high content of proteins, fibre, minerals and especially the B-vitamins it is an important part of a balanced diet and a culinary treat. It is particularly suitable for grilling or breading.
