Pink Oyster (Pleurotus djamor) is a tropical strain that produces beautiful clusters of light pink to deep pinkish-red caps that are a favorite at farmers' markets. They are succulent and savory, and have a denser texture than other oyster varieties. Pink oyster grain spawn can be used for indoor production using sawdust or straw or outdoor production using straw or wood chips.
