Angel Wings

Pleurocybella porrigens

This longstanding edible mushroom has been much maligned in recent years, due to a disaster that occurred in Japan, where a number of people with kidney disease sat down to a meal together, and ate a repast which featured Angel Wing mushrooms. A number of the people who ate the meal died in the ensuing days - though it has never been shown that the mushrooms were the cause of the deaths (the mushrooms were not the only food that the victims had in common). Because of this, many people have shied away from eating this mushroom, in spite of the opinion of many experts that the mushroom is generally safe, as much as any other mushroom.

We eat this mushroom. It has never harmed us.

Angel Wings are distinctly different than Pleurotus Oyster mushrooms. Though both are referred to as Oysters, Angel Wings are a different genus than other Oysters. They do not attach to the logs or stumps they grow on with a stem - instead, the side of the mushroom attaches in a semi-circle to the wood, and the mushroom grows UPward, instead of OUTward. It is also thinner, and rufflier than a Pleurotus Oyster mushroom.

They dry very well, and reconstitute easily. Medicinal uses for this mushroom have not been well documented.

We carry Angel Wings spawn in our Mushroom Store.


Mushrooms may cause allergic reactions in sensitive people. Some mushrooms are more likely to do this than others. Please research possible reactions prior to purchase. We are not responsible for how you choose to use our products, and do not claim that mushrooms are completely safe to consume. We merely assure that they are as represented on our website.

We do not make any promises as to the efficacy of any mushroom product to treat or prevent any disease or condition. Please consult a doctor or alternative practitioner prior to using any mushroom product for treatment of any disease or illness.

We cannot guarantee that any spawn, spore, or kit product will grow or produce mushrooms. We do guarantee that our products are as described, and that the methods in our instructions do produce good results, but once our products leave our facility, we can no longer control the factors which are responsible for success. Gardening of any kind is a chancy business, and success depends upon adherence to instructions, and may be influenced by weather, environmental factors, and other controllable and non-controllable factors. As such, we cannot guarantee your success, and advise that if you are uncomfortable with purchasing under these terms, that you refrain from purchase.

We do promise to answer your questions, and offer reasonable assistance if needed, and to correct any errors if a mistake is made on our part.
