Fresh Oyster mushrooms will stay fresh 5-7 days, and are best refrigerated in an airtight container.

Fresh oyster mushrooms are packed loose with their cap and stem attached, although their stem is lengthier because of the oyster mushroom’s lateral attachment to the tree it grows on.

These delicate, lacey mushrooms are consistently thin so they are excellent for sautéing, although they are also delicious in their raw form atop a salad. Tip: Oyster mushrooms aren’t as resilient as other mushrooms, be sure to use them quickly before they spoil.
