Flavor and Texture: Black Pearl King Oysters (Pleurotus Ostreatus - Hybrid) are one of our newest mushrooms. It is a hybrid from Japan resulting in a cross between a European and an Asian Pleurotus Ostreatus. This thick and meaty mushroom offers a texture similar to scallops with a nice earthy, umami flavor that pulls through. With its beautiful marble patterned cap, this mushroom doesn't disappoint! We love it in Stir-Fries, pasta, as scallops, and sautéed in quarter pieces to go along with any meal.
Benefits: Along with our other mushrooms, Black Pearl King Oysters are another great source of nutrients. They contain Magnesium, Potassium, and Fiber. Mushrooms are a great low carb, low sodium addition to any diet. They also contain the amino acid Ergothioneine which can help fight free radicals.
