Oysters, Pacific – Seasonal Assortment
Pacific Oysters are Crassostrea gigas – and unlike our native Atlantic Eastern Oysters, are originally transplants from Japan. Milder in flavor, crisp, and less briny than our local New England oysters, the Pacific oysters are generally smaller, with deep cups and distinct, ridged shells. Perfect for service on the half shell, or try them on the grill: when they open, they are done! We ship the freshest oysters in our inventory the day of your order – like Kumamotos, Shigokus, or Kusshis. Sold in Two Dozen Each Increments. Ships Live. Farmed. US and Canada. INFORMATION/CARE: Product is live. Discard oysters that have broken or still remain open after pressing on their shell. Store in refrigeration upon receipt, covered in damp towels or paper, preferably so they lie flat. DO NOT store in fresh water or ice. Do not store in air tight plastic containers or bags. Best when prepared day of arrival, oysters will live up to 5 days in refrigeration.
