White Button, Crimini and Portabella Mushrooms
Scientific Name: Agaricus species
These mushrooms are well known to many of us and they have their culinary place along side the best mushrooms, cultivated and wild.
Cultivation: Methods have become so streamlined and adapted to large equipment that it is difficult to get the same “square foot production” that commercial cultivators get. Hence, in terms of price alone, we are better off getting these mushrooms from commercial growers or outlets. However, in terms of quality... now that’s a different story! Growing them from a ready-to-fruit kit yields the freshest mushrooms, plus it is fun to watch them develop!
