The freshest newest most prolific oyster spawn available in NZ.

1KG Pleurotus parsonsiae (wold's first chewy oyster) mushroom spawn

Check out other people growing it in our NZ Mushroom growing group.

Pleurotus parsonsiae is one of the rarest oysters mushrooms in the world and is only found in NZ. It is extremely close to P. djamor that the pink oyster everyone grows can pollute our mushroom and destroy it forever.

Grow endemic NZ mushrooms and love the country you live in. Mushroom growers did not even know this existed until I found it. The government is now in a research program with IWI growing native mushrooms.

Help me save our beautiful mushrooms and grow a strain that grows all year round. Yes, in winter, summer and is the best tasting chewy oyster that does not disappear when cooking.

People who started growing this oyster will never stop because you can fry it and it is juicy. Surgeons, Ph.D.'s, doctors, scientists, ecologists, computer programmers, DOC staff, Master-art students, psychiatrists, lawyers, all in our group growing it. Are you ready for a new world of mushroom growing?

A top scientist has spoken about the dangers of growing imported mushrooms in NZ. Dr. Jerry Cooper the DNA analysis for Landcare research has written about P. djamor (the pink oyster mushroom):
"I believe it is inter-fertile with P. parsonsiae and so there is a risk of escape and genetic pollution"

Everybody cares about the endemic hector's dolphin but do you care about our endemic mushrooms?
