Seongi Beoseot – King Oyster Mushroom


The largest species in the oyster mushroom genus, it has a thick, meaty white stem and a small tan cap (in young specimens). It has little flavor or aroma when raw. When cooked, it develops typical mushroom umami flavors with a texture similar to that of abalone.

These mushrooms were not introduced to Korea until 1986. They are sold in both large and small sizes.
