  • Description

    Our most innovative oyster, Shigokus are Pacific oysters grown in bags that are attached to floats that go up and down in the tides, tumbling the oysters.

    Every time the oysters get agitated, they use their muscles to close their shells. It’s like Pilates class for oysters twice a day, and the result is an oyster with wonderfully firm flesh and a deep cup.

    Shigoku means "ultimate” in Japanese, and we think these unique oysters fit the bill.

    Quantity: 30 count
    Flavor Profile: Strong brininess with a sweet finish and firm, plump texture.
    Size: approximately a 2 - 2.75 inch shell.

    Shigokus

    Delicious as can be, but all that tumbling must put on muscle; those guys put up quite a fight opening. Well worth it.

    Taste/Consistency

    I love the deep shell of these oysters. However they lack consistency. 7 shells out of 40 where open and dried out and some that were close had very little liquid in them. Some were very good however but probably won't buy this oyster again. The store itself does an excellent job packing and arrives FedEx NDA early morning delivery.

    Perfect

    These were perfect oysters with deep cups and a nice flat lid. Packaged extremely well. I preferred these to the Kumamoto because they weren't as intensely salty and were more sweet and melony. Some of them were unbelievably sweet! I would definitely get them again

    Shigoku oysters

    I love this oyster cultivar. The meat is the same size as the shell. The next size up Fat Bastards are the best. Wish that you offered them for online sale.
