Description
 

Our Carlsbad Luna oysters (Crassostrea giga) are sustainably grown and locally farmed in Southern California by Carlsbad Aquafarm. At 2-3” in size and nestled in a deep-cupped shell full of flavorful Pacific liquor, the Luna oyster is most similar to a Kumamoto. These petite beauties boast a refreshing brininess with a touch of melon and cucumber and subtle metallic finish.

Located just outside San Diego, Carlsbad Aquafarm minimally impacts mar ine habitats, wild fish populations, water quality, and the community. Suspended long-line tray culture keeps shellfish product clean and optimally minimizes contact with the marine environment. Rigorous laboratory testing and ultra-violet purification systems help ensure product safety. Filter-feeding oysters naturally feed on nutrient-rich phytoplankton.

Oysters are shipped live and fresh; never frozen or processed.

Tip: Live oysters should have tightly-closed, clean, unbroken shells (if gaping slightly, live oyster will close when tapped), and fresh scent of the sea. Store oyster in ≤40°F refrigerator covered with a moist cloth in breathable container for up to 5 days. There is no such thing as a time of year not to purchase. When oysters are spawning, their flavor, texture and size are slightly compromised but not their freshness.

Fantastic! May 19, 2011
Reviewer: J. Yoon from Westfield, NJ United States  
These were absolutely delicious. The meat was plump and soft but still with a bit of crisp tooth feel and a light metallic initial taste with a sweet creamy finish.

Every west coast oyster makes me sad that the easily attainable and (cheaper) east coast oysters just don’t wow me as much as west coast oysters do.
