Portobello Mushroom (Agaricus Bisporus) – Spore Swab

(24 customer reviews)


Agaricus Bisporus is an edible basidiomycete mushroom native to grasslands in Eurasia and North America. It has two color states while immature – white and brown – both of which have various names, with additional names for the mature state. Agaricus bisporus, is a popular edible fungus that is widely cultivated and consumed around the world. This mushroom is typically small to medium-sized, with a round or slightly flattened cap that can range in color from creamy white to light brown. The cap is smooth and firm, with a slightly nutty flavor and a tender texture when cooked.

When immature and white, this mushroom may be known as:

  • Common Mushroom
  • White Mushroom
  • Button Mushroom
  • Cultivated Mushroom
  • Table Mushroom
  • Champignon (French for Mushroom)

When immature and brown, it may be known variously as:

  • Swiss Brown Mushroom
  • Roman Brown Mushroom
  • Italian Brown Mushroom
  • Cremini/Crimini Mushroom
  • Chestnut Mushroom (not to be confused with Pholiota adiposa)
  • Baby Bella

When at mature state with a brown cap mushroom measuring 10–15 centimeters (4″–6″ inches), it may be known variously as:

  • Portobello
  • Portabella
  • Portobella


At Green Grass Grove, we understand that our Patrons may have different preferences and use different names when referring to the same mushroom. That’s why we offer Agaricus bisporus under the names White Mushroom, Cremini Mushroom, and Portobello Mushroom, even though they are all the same species. We have found that many of our Patrons may not be aware that these different names refer to the same mushroom, so we have listed them all to make it easier for them to find what they are looking for. We believe in providing our Patrons with the information they need to make informed decisions, and each of our product pages contains educational information about this mushroom, including all the common names and stages of growth. So, whether you call it White Mushroom, Cremini Mushroom, Portobello Mushroom, or something else, you can trust that you are getting the same high-quality Agaricus bisporus from Green Grass Grove!


Spore Swab Packs consist of sterile cotton swabs infused with spores from a particular strain of mushroom. These swabs are designed for collecting spores from a mushroom’s fruiting body.
