King Tuber (Pleurotus tuber-regium)

Grow your own edible and medicinal king stropharia mushrooms with liquid
culture syringes!

Pleurotus tuber-regium, also known as the king tuber, grows in tropical regions
such as Africa, Asia and Australia. It consumes nematodes which are parasitic to
many plants and can therefore be used as a natural pesticide. It is rich in
polysaccharides which have been shown to be anti-tumour and to delay the
progression of diabetes. It is also being studied for its antioxidant properties and
how it can support proper functioning of the liver.

King tuber is a saprobic mushroom that grows on dead wood, causing white rot.
It produces a sclerotium, which is an underground tuber from which the fruiting
bodies emerge. The sclerotium is round, dark brown with a white interior and up
to 30 cm wide. The fruiting body is similar to oyster mushrooms with white stems
and tan caps. However, as it matures, the caps curve upward. Both the
sclerotium and the fruiting bodies can be consumed. It can be grown on organic
waste such as corn, sawdust or cardboard, making a great addition to any
garden. Optimum growth rate for the mycelium occurs at 95 degree Fahrenheit
but can occur between 59 to 104 degree Fahrenheit.
