The popular large stuffing mushroom, and hamburger mushroom. Pick them before the cap opens for Criminis, and after it opens for Portabellas. Either way, you get flavor and freshness that you just can't get from the store. Enjoy in a wide range of preparations.
Portobellos have been used as replacements for hamburger patties by vegans, and as a replacement for the bun by low-carbers, but it is useful in the kitchen beyond that. They are large mushrooms with good protein content, so you can use them creatively to build an entire meal around.
Easy to grow. In fact, the easiest of all commercial mushrooms. If you can't get anything to grow, you can produce these large and tasty mushrooms. Not recommended for cottage industry though as a mono-crop - the only way you can sell these at a profit is if you have a specialty product that uses them, or if you sell them with many other mushroom products.
Good for sheep and pigs, and can help reduce the effects of chemicals in commercial feeds. They may also help protect them from common minor infections.
For people, they contain components that may help reduce damage to skin and eyes from exposure to airborne chemicals.
Currently, these mushrooms are grown primarily from the brown form of Agaricus Bisporus.
Certain seasons of the year, growers may use Agaricus Brunnescens instead of A. Bisporus. A. Brunnescens has a firmer and whiter cap, and pinker (paler) gills when it is young. A. Bisporus is not quite as firm, and the gills turn darker much earlier.
Both Agaricus Bisporus and Agaricus Brunnescens are available in our Mushroom Store.
