Dense White or Agaricus bitorquis. This is one of my favorites mushrooms for the shear size and durability of the mushroom. Its flavor is similar to that of the white button mushroom, but it will not cook down as much and is a little chewier. It is a denser solid mushroom. It often can attain extremely large sizes, 5-8 inches in diameter and the caps can get to be two inches thick. The average size is 3-5 inches. This is a truly white mushroom and is resistant many mushroom viruses. It will grow at cool temperatures and in warm temperatures. Its fruiting range is between 55-80 degrees F. For a while it was grown as a commercial mushroom, but later gave way to A. bisporus, the current white button mushroom.
Best Temperature for Growing: 65 - 72 degrees Fahrenheit
Shipping Weight: 12lbs. / Grows up to 4 lbs. of mushrooms total.
