  • Description

    As mentioned in the name these Kumamotos will bring you the same great flavor but their shapes and sizes will vary.

    You will receive at least 30 oysters consisting of a mix of doubles (two oysters in one) and mix of sizes and shapes. We count each double as one, so you will most likely end up with more than 30 oysters. 

    Kumamotos are worshiped for their amazing sweetness and clean, fruity aromas. These Japanese natives grow agonizingly slowly, but some things in life are worth the wait, and Kumos are one of them. Ours take three to four years to reach perfection, and when they do, they will have plump meats with a hint of honeydew in both flavor and color. Many people’s favorite oyster. 

    Quantity: 30 count
    Flavor Profile: Bright, sweet flavors with a cucumber finish.
    Size: Size will vary per oyster

    Kumos are kumos, but…

    Honestly, for the relatively modest cost break (only about 25% off), I won't order these again, given the awkwardness of shucking (some clusters/stacks were impossible to open cleanly, and at least one was long dead…pretty ugly) and their unusually small size. I guess I figure for just a buck more an oyster you can have Taylor's virtually perfect kumos. Think of these as "Adventures in Extreme Oyster Anatomy." lol

    Great option for those who like to shuck

    Lost count, but we had just over 30 "clusters" and at least 45-50 oysters. Cups were deep and flavor was perfect with nice brine flavor. Like other reviews say, a bit challenging for someone without experience, but had fun just sitting around with a couple knives and digging into the pile. We've been buying raw oysters from Taylor for sometime and always happy with shipping and ordering. Requested these about 7 days out and they shipped overnight and arrived when requested cold fresh and clean. Couldn't be happier. Thanks!

    Imperfect oysters

    the way to go got around 45 a little more difficult to shuck because of the angles

    Imperfect kumos

    This was my first purchase of the imperfect kumos, and I was pleasantly surprised that most of them were clumps of two, which gave me over 50 oysters overall. While some were quite small, it was still a ton of quality oysters for the price. The clumped shells made it slightly difficult to serve them in half shells, we had to shuck all the oysters first and then plop them back into shells that were capable of holding them on the plate, and as many shot glasses as we had. That left us with a good number that weren’t able to be presented in individual shells. But, we doubled a few of the small shooters up, lightly fried a few as well and we we’re not upset by that. Overall they are still the same great oysters, at a great deal, but slightly awkward for serving. I don’t see how you could bbq hardly any of these really at all, due to the awkward clumps and whatnot, but we prefer them raw anyways so it worked for us. Sorry for the wordiness, but hope this helps those on the fence about these. I almost want to buy another bag myself.
