(NOTE: If you are not interested in growing Oyster Mushrooms, but just finding in the wild, try going to the Nature's Restaurant Online site Oyster Mushroom page.)

The Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) is a sought after wild mushroom, and cultivated all over the world. In the woods, it will be found growing on either dead standing, or fallen trees. I've only seen it on deciduous (hardwood) trees.

Eat only young specimens, cooked. Good in soups and stir-fry's. Since the flesh is thin and even in thickness, you can tear this one apart by hand. Only start with a little if you don't know how you will react to it. Even though it is sold in stores, it does tend to make some people feel sick.
