Snow Oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus) is a popular, fleshy, firm oyster variety. In the wild, they can often be found growing on dying maple trees. They have sweeter flavor and aroma than other oysters and hold their shape and texture when cooked. (The taste of snow oyster mushrooms is very mild, and some even describe it as slightly woody and earthy.) Oyster mushrooms are a great mushroom for beginners. They colonize quickly and are reliable producers. They are also a cold weather loving strain that tend to fruit in the cooler months.
Snow oyster sawdust spawn can be used for log projects and/or outdoor beds and containers.
Sawdust spawn is ideal for larger log projects of 10 or more logs.
Snow oyster works well with the log, stump, and totem methods. Colonization is fast and should start producing in 4-12 months. They fruit best in the spring and fall and prefer softer hardwoods such as poplar and aspen, though they will also work on maple.

If you don’t plan to use your snow oyster sawdust spawn right away, store in the refrigerator. Use within 6 months of receipt.
Snow Oysters can easily replace button mushrooms in most recipes and pair well with many cuisines and flavors. Like all oyster mushrooms, they retain water and may develop a viscous texture when undercooked. If you prefer a firm or dryer texture, continue to cook them until their liquid has reduced and cooked off and they begin to brown.
All our spawn is made using organic cultures from our own culture bank. Our sawdust spawn is handmade from a blend of locally sourced, all-natural, organic, and non-GMO woods and supplements from farms and forests in New England and North America.
If you’re going to consume home-grown mushrooms, make sure to cook your fresh mushrooms thoroughly with heat. If it is your first time eating this species, it is best to start with a small amount to check for allergies, even if cooked.

Ready To Go!!!
Just received my grain spawn in the mail. The couple of weeks turnaround before shipping was well worth it, because the bag of Snow Oyster spawn was Very well colonized out of the box. Can’t wait to spawn this to substrate! I’ve got some Pink Oyster already, and it will be interesting to see just how different the fruiting conditions will really be. With the mild winters we’ve been having up here in Zone 5, it will be nice to have some harvest after the vegetable crops and Other mushrooms have gone to sleep for the winter. Great Job North Spore!
A white explosion
I ordered the wrong product and they quickly sent me the right one. The sawdust bag come with some white growth already in it. I only used about 3/4 of the bag and what was left just looked like sawdust. Later that week the bag of sawdust looked like a bag full of marshmallows! It's just exploding everywhere.
