Scientific name: Agrocybe aegerita
Appearance: Pioppino mushrooms have a firm, velvety texture with a brown to dark brown cap that can range from 2 to 8 cm in diameter. The cap is often convex or flat and can be slightly curled at the edges. The stem is very thickand we have seen meaty 8-9" monsters! Definitely an entertaining mushroom to cultivate!

Nutrition: Pioppino mushrooms are low in calories and high in fiber, protein, and vitamins B and D. They also contain antioxidants and minerals such as copper, potassium, and selenium.
Cooking: Pioppino mushrooms are versatile and can be cooked in a variety of ways, including sautéing, roasting, grilling, and stir-frying. They pair well with a range of ingredients, including meats, seafood, vegetables, and pasta. When cooking, it's best to avoid overcooking, as they can become tough and rubbery.
