Other interesting information

Oyster mushrooms were first recorded in 1775 by Dutch naturalist Nikolaus Joseph Freiherr Von Jacquin.

During World War I, many European countries experienced food shortages due to a halt on imports. Germany imported approximately one-third of the food consumed within the country, and in 1914, the country began to suffer when the British implemented an import blockade. The German government relied on local farms and large estates to supply the country with produce, and over time, they had to look for other methods to provide a fast, sustainable, and nutritious food source. During the shortage, Oyster mushrooms were selected as a new commercially cultivated item and were favored for their easy-to-grow nature, nutritional content, and fast-production rates. Oyster mushrooms quickly became an emergency food source, and after the war, the mushrooms were cultivated worldwide. In the present day, there has been a resurgence in mushroom cultivation throughout Germany, and one German farmer has utilized a former military base to grow Oyster mushrooms commercially. Georg Heinrich Ruhl owns Druid Austernpilze, an organic farm outside Frankfurt, and annually produces over 880,000 pounds of organic mushrooms. Mushrooms have increased in popularity throughout Germany as a sustainable food source, and Ruhl cultivates Oyster mushrooms in sixteen bunkers that once contained equipment for American soldiers.
