pohu progression

king oyster is a bit quiet right now but pohu (another variety of oyster mushroom) has taken over keeping us in mushrooms...

my index finger and a cluster of pohu oyster mushrooms on  3/14/17





this morning 3/21/17

this cluster weighed 15 ounces...if i'd harvested in the evening instead of the morning it probably would have made a full pound.  we gave them a taste at dinner tonight.  they have a similar sweetness to the king oyster but with a little more earthiness and a more delicate texture.  quite lovely.
