Very unique look -- relentless tumbling produces an oyster shaped like a mussel. Flavor is sweet and briny with a cucumber finish.
Flavor Influenced By

Hatchery seed is suspended on longlines in Seapa Baskets. The baskets float and sink as the tide lifts and falls each day, creating a naturally tumbled oyster.
