Fun fact: White button mushrooms were originally brown in color, until a natural mutation occurred in the 1920's in Pennsylvania. Farmers took advantage of that color variation to breed the white mushrooms. Ironically crimini and portabella mushrooms the brown color cousins of the white buttons have been increasing in popularity over the last few years.
