Chesapeake Golds are cultivated by Hooper’s Island Oyster Aquaculture Co. in Chesapeake Bay. Grown in waters with mid salinity, these oysters gain a sweetness and crisp texture unlike any other oyster. The tasting notes vary from Jerusalem artichoke to creamed corn, to even a not-quite ripe banana. All agree it’s a unique experience in the power of “merroir”, or the influence of location on an oyster.
By far our largest oyster, they’ve got deep cups, thick shells, and full meats. The pride of the Chesapeake, direct to you.
