ORIGIN: Gorge Harbour on Cortes Island, BC
SIZE: Extra Small to Medium
FLAVOUR PROFILE: Fairly mild in flavour, meat is creamy in colour and very firm.
NOTES: Silent Harvest oysters come in a range of sizes from xs and s tray oysters to large and Medium and shuck oysters from strings. The flavour of these oysters is fairly mild and the meat is a creamy colour and very firm due to current flow. The tray oysters have a large frill and the string oysters less so.
We also raise beach hardened oysters which develop a stronger flavour which are grown just outside Gorge Harbour in Uganda Passage. The colour of the meat is also cream in colour with a dark mantle. The beach oysters come in all sizes from gems to Medium, and a few large.
