Fresh White, Brown, & Specialty Mushrooms

Fresh mushrooms are best, and we grow different varieties for different tastes. Although our white mushrooms and Baby Bellas are still the standard choice for many dinner tables, you may enjoy more unique varieties like Oyster, Shiitake, and Lion’s Mane mushrooms. We even have recipes featuring specialty mushrooms!

High Vitamin D Mushrooms

Vitamin D deficiency is a global concern. At Monterey Mushrooms, we developed a solution for that by creating a “High Vitamin D” line of mushrooms to help consumers reach the FDA’s daily recommended value.

Developed in partnership with the USDA, our special post-harvest processes replicate vitamin D-rich sunlight indoors, resulting in mushrooms that are high in vitamin D.
