Treasure Coast Mushroom

A favorite among amateur mycologists, the Treasure Coast mushroom is known for its large flushes and is quite resistant to contamination. The Treasure Coast strain grows in big, dense clusters. This strain typically produces a large overall yield and a large number of individual mushrooms spread out over additional flushes. It fruits well on grain and on pasteurized or sterilized substrates.

A prolific fruiter, the Treasure Coast strain is noted for its ability to occasionally spin off albino—or near albino—substrains. Its spores are dark purple or brown in color. The caps are typically a light brown color with golden stripes.


Treasure Coast was first collected from the southern Florida Gulf Coast. The area is referred to as the Treasure Coast because of the many shipwrecks that occurred in the area. Theshipwrecksresulted in the discovery of treasures—hence the name Treasure Coast!

Benefits of Fungi

Fungi are critical to the health and well-being of our planet and have a myriad of benefits. Mycologists estimate that there are some 1.5 million species of fungi contributing to the health and balance of the planet. There is ongoing research and development in the field of mycology. This research currently includes the use of fungi to detoxify environmental pollutants and disasters, and the use of psilocybin to treat severe mental health conditions.
