Beach-grown at the very bottom of Puget Sound, these Kumamotos have sturdy, deep-cupped shells, distinctive raised ridges, and often a tell-tale green tinge. Kumos are happy only in Chapman Cove, a remarkably productive lobe of Oakland Bay with firm ground and three freshwater creeks feeding mineralized water into the estuary.

    Tiny, tasty, and thoroughly enjoyable. Creamy, buttery with a mild briny taste and slightly sweet aftertaste. One of my top 5 favorites. I’ll but them any time I find them. These are a different genus than the common Crassostrea gigas, or “Pacific” oyster raised along the west coast. I prefer them plain, with no lemon or sauce.

    They can get tiny compared to your larger oyster varieties, but the taste is phenomenal. Very sweet.
