Since edible mushrooms are adapted to grow on several lignocellulosic wastes, it is possible to use a wide variety of unconventional materials to cultivate Pleurotus spp., which production has greatly increased in the last years. This study was performed to evaluate yield, biological efficiency and quality of Pleurotus eryngii fruit bodies, produced on a sterilized substrate of wheat straw and Cynara cardunculus mixtures. Substrates composed by 75% of wheat straw and 25% of C. cardunculus improved the highest yield and biological efficiency; however mushrooms with bigger dimensions were obtained with a mixture of 25% of wheat straw and 75% of C. cardunculus.
