Agaricus bisporus, Italian brown

Closely related to the white mushroom, it has a naturally dark cap color of light tan to rich brown. The flavor is deeper, denser, earthier and favored by European cooks.


Look for mushrooms with a fresh, smooth appearance and closed caps to use raw in salads or for most cooking. Mushrooms with open caps generally have a richer flavor perfect for sauces, pizzas and soups.

Storage and Handling

Ostrom's Crimini mushrooms don't have to be used immediately. They'll stay fresh for 5-7 days if you keep them refrigerated. Store bulk mushrooms in a paper bag in the refrigerator. If you purchase Ostrom's Crimini mushrooms in our shrink-wrapped package, it's a good idea to open up the top, remove the plastic wrap from cup mushrooms and cover loosely with a paper towel.

Don't forget! You do not have to wash, soak or peel mushrooms. Simply wipe clean with a damp paper towel immediately before using, you can trim the stems if they appear dry.
