Oyster Mushroom Growing Kits The science projects you can eat! The family that hallucinates together stays together. If you're an intrepid mushroom forager, a home cook who likes to grow their own herb garden, or a family who wants to work on a cool food project together this could be for you. There simple kits that, with minimal effort, grows batches of edible—not psychedelic mushrooms right in your own home. The first harvest happens in a few weeks and, if tended well, repeats itself every couple weeks. Each kit comes with instructions and everything you need to grow several batches of tasty mushrooms. No green thumb needed. In fact, a brown one might be better. As the saying goes, give a man a mushroom and he'll eat for a day. Teach him to grow his own in a closet in his house and he'll eat for a lifetime. These kit's will allow you to observe the mushroom life-cycle in action - first hand. You will see why mushrooms are the premier recyclers on the planet as you watch them consume the paper roll, Straw, cardboard or books right at home on your counter top. Since mushrooms can decompose anything organic, you will be amazed as your oyster mushrooms begin to emerge and grow right before your eyes. The best part is that these delicious fungi will be ready to eat in a few short weeks and will continue to "fruit" for many months. You can expect about five "flushes" (harvests) per kit. Each flush yields nearly a pound of mushrooms.
The Blue Dove mushroom undergoes a fascinating metamorphosis from frosty blue pins to dark grey clusters. It is more solid and flavorful than most pale oyster strains. Generally, they taste sweetly shrimp- like, shrink little, and hold their shape when briefly cooked.
