This oyster is originally from the Kumamoto area of Kyushu, Japan.  It is slow growing and small in size with a very deep cup.  Raised in California, Oregon and Washington for many years, they were not marketed on a large scale until the mid 1980's.  The Kumamoto is rich in flavor, almost buttery, and slightly salty.  The finish is sweet, mildly fruity with a light metallic flavor.  Our Humboldt Bay, California Kumamoto’s are grown in the intertidal zone on long lines, suspended about one foot above the bottom.

 

Oyster Handling:

For longest shelf life, live oysters should be stored in a cold (35-40F, 1-4C), dark place and not disturbed.  The box they arrive in should be drained of standing water by making holes in the bottom, or they can be transferred to a similar type of storage container, and then a damp towel should be placed on top of the oysters to keep them moist.  Never let them sit in water.
