One of the most asked-for oysters, Kumamotos are loved for their smooth buttery texture, and sweet fruity flavor. Uniquely shaped, their shells are deep cupped, with highly fluted shells and dramatic curves.
Recommended for the discerning connoisseur, the timid first-timer, and everyone in between, they are best eaten raw on the half shell.
Kumamotos are also referred to as “Kumos” “Kumie” and “My Precious…”
