Raspberry Point oysters are a 3”-3 ½” east coast variety grown far to the north. Their flavor is salty, clean & particularly sweet, with the characteristic muskiness of Atlantic oysters. They're renowned for their particularly clean finish.
Raspberry Points are grown in cages off the sea floor, off the coast of Prince Edward Island National Park. It takes 6-7 years for one to reach market size, but if you’re a fan of Atlantic oysters, they’re worth the wait!
These oysters have been stored in a high tech refrigerated flowing seawater system post-harvest that keeps them fresher, tastier, and alive longer. While in this wet holding area, they naturally clean themselves of sand, bacteria and grit by filtering the clean seawater.
If you will be eating your Raspberry Point oysters soon after arrival, you can simply store them in a bowl in your refrigerator covered with a damp towel.
For ideal longer term storage, you may want to keep them on ice with the "cup" side of the shell down. See how to store shellfish for a tutorial.
7-10 days from date shipped.
