The white button mushroom is the most widely cultivated mushroom in the US. It has been bred to produce a mushroom with a uniform cap size and thin stem. The thin stem reduces waste, since it is the cap that is harvested and valued the most. Mushroom caps in the button stage are usually 1 to 3” in diameter, but if left to mature and open, caps can reach 5 to 8” in diameter. Consumers enjoy eating this mushroom because it can be prepared in many ways. Mushroom growers find that the white button mushroom’s compact shape makes it an easy mushroom to pick, pack, and ship. White button mushrooms have been sold in markets for the last 30 years.
