Our mushrooms

Parwan Valley Mushrooms produces and sells pure, natural button, cup and flat mushrooms cultivated in a pristine, climate controlled environment using the latest technology available in worldwide mushroom production. Mushrooms are the only known item on the produce shelf with naturally occurring vitamin D, making them a super choice for healthy eating.

White - button

White - button

Button mushrooms are common white mushrooms (agaricus bisporus) that have been picked early in their development. The name refers to the shape and stage of growth, not the size of the mushroom. In button mushrooms, the cap is still firmly closed around the stem. These mushrooms are under 35mm.

 

Flavour

Button mushrooms have a light, mild flavour and delicate texture which makes them extremely versatile.

 

Serving suggestions

  • Marinate in red wine vinegar and herbs.
  • Pan-fry in butter and serve with bacon and eggs.
  • Toss whole into casseroles towards the end of cooking time.

Availability

January to December.

White - cup

White - cup

Cup mushrooms are common white mushrooms (agaricus bisporus) picked just as their veil  - or underside - begins to open around the stem. They are deeper in colour and flavour than button mushrooms, but picked earlier than flat mushrooms. Cup mushrooms are over 35mm.

 

Flavour

Cup mushrooms have a full-bodied flavour and firm texture.

 

Serving suggestions

  • Sauté in white wine, butter and herbs and serve with polenta.
  • Top with layer of cheese and seasoning and pop under the grill.
  • Slice and add to creamy fettucini carbonara with cream and bacon lardons.

Availability

January to December.

White - flat

White - flat

Flat mushrooms are a common white mushroom (agaricus bisporus) picked at their most mature stage when the veil has opened fully to form a flat top. Flats are the largest and most intensely flavoured of the three white agaricus stages. Flats are almost a meal in themselves, and lend themselves to simple treatments and spectacular presentation. Flat mushrooms are between 60mm and 130mm.

 

Flavour

The robust flavour of flat mushrooms is similar to field mushrooms. They have a dense, meaty texture and darker gills than the other agaricus types.

 

Serving suggestions

  • Stuff with onion, garlic, tomatoes and herbs and bake.
  • Barbecue with asparagus, olive oil and seasoning.
  • Slice, grill until soft and add to a wild rice salad.

Availability

January to December.
