An oyster labeled simply Chesapeake is a wild oyster that could have been harvested from anywhere in the bay, but most likely in the upper Maryland end, which is where most wild harvesting still happens. It will likely be low in salinity, owing to the Chesapeake’s huge freshwater load, and skimpy in size.

    No brine, no metallic finish but juicy and soooooooo sweet. We enjoyed these right on my beach on the 4th of July along with lobster tails and crab legs. Yum!

    Not bad, but not notable.
