Elm Oyster - Hypsizygus ulmariusSynonyms: Shirotamogitake, Da Yu Mo
A relatively rare mushroom, which usually grows singly or in small groups on elms and beech. The Hypzisigus ulmarius closely parallels the morphology of an Oyster mushroom but is far better in flavour and texture. This mushroom can become quite large (4-15cm).The Elm Oyster is a delicious edible mushroom that can be used like other Oyster mushrooms. On the market this mushroom is often incorrectly sold as 'Oyster mushroom' but it produces larger fruit bodies than other Oysters. The colour of the fruiting bodies is white to light grey or light brown, depending on substrate and habitat.

Laying out a mushroom patch with wood colonizing mushrooms is very easy. The ideal time is spring, as soon as there is no more night frost to be expected. The base of the patch consists of wood chips of hardwoods such as poplar, oak, alder, aspen, maple, birch, ash, beech, willow or elm. Soft woods are not suitable for mushroom cultivation.
