  • Description

    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. 

    They are grown from mid-century, heirloom seeds rarely found outside of Chapman’s Cove, WA. Their pure genetic line dates to the original Japanese imports from the late 1940s.

    We farm the only purebred Kumos available. They are a gentle, fulfilling oyster with remarkably consistent growth patterns.

    Their salted honeydew meat fills up deep cupped shells, brimming with sweet  liquor. Many people’s favorite oyster!

     Quantity: 30 count
    Flavor Profile: Bright, sweet flavors with a cucumber finish.
    Size: Approximately 1 - 2 inch shell

    Delicious & Fresh

    I have ordered these as gifts on 3 separate occasions. They arrive beautifully packaged and FRESH! Harvest day was one day prior to shipping. These oysters are outstanding. Great flavor and very plump and meaty. If you know someone that loves oysters you can’t go wrong with these! Thank you Taylor Shellfish. I wish you had a rewards program so I could rack up some points :)

    My daughter and I truly love these oysters! They have a great flavor as well as texture. This is the third time I have ordered them and I will definitely order them again.

    Kumamotos

    Outstanding...plump and just the right size. So fresh and better pricing than my local seafood shops. Well done, Taylor Shellfish!

    Great Anniversary Gift for Oyster Loving Friends

    I didn't personally enjoy the oysters but I did buy them for very dear friends of mine who love them. I got them for their Anniversary and they totally loved them! They said they would buy them themselves in the future. If that isn't a good testimony nothing is!

    Tiny but mighty

    Consistently my favorite oyster with the Shigoku. Might me small, but packs big flavor.

    Kumamotos

    Shells were thin. Too easy to shuck and the meat inside was limp, meaning they had probably been harvested many days before shipping. One of the 30 oysters was dry upon shucking. Taste overall was average. Very disappointed given the high cost and $40 express shipping. Not up to par with past experiences with Taylor and Hama Hama. Has this been a bad season for oysters?

    Great lil oysters

    Loved these. Really bright, clean mineral flavor. Not the easiest oyster to shuck, so maybe start with a bigger one for your first time. Or just go for it!

    Oysters

    The delivery was great, however we got a few (3) oysters with nothing inside but sod. A little disappointing considering the price of the 60 oysters we bought and the size of some the oysters were a little larger than a quarter. The flavor was good but I think minor improvements would be better!
