8 Types of Mushrooms

Mushrooms are macrofungi bearing fruiting structures that are fleshy and exist in a variety of species.

They are found either above the ground as epigeous mushrooms or below the ground as hypogeous mushrooms.

White button mushrooms are also called champignon mushrooms and are the most basic mushrooms available anywhere.

White Button Mushrooms

Oyster Mushroom

They grow on logs of fallen trees or dead standing trees, which often become home to oyster mushrooms growing in clusters or individually cultivated.

They are slightly bigger than white button mushrooms and are also slightly darker in color, and they are a light shade of brown.

Cremini Mushroom

Shiitake mushrooms grow naturally on hardwood tree remains that are decaying and are usually dark brown with white caps that usually grow to 2-4 inches in cap diameter.
