When you think of a mushroom, do you picture a White Button or maybe a Baby Bella? Did you know that there are many different types of unique and colorful culinary mushrooms like Blue, Elm, Golden, Pink, and Italian Oyster Mushrooms? As well as the wonderfully delicious Lion’s Mane, King Trumpet, Maitake, and Chestnut Mushrooms? Texas Fungus is the largest mushroom farm in North Texas. Located in Arlington, Texas, they sell to local restaurants and direct to the public at six DFW area Farmers Markets. Tune in to hear how they got into the fungus business, their process of growing these interesting varieties, and some tips on how you can grow mushrooms easily at home.
