  • Description

    The Sumo Kumo is the big sibling of the Kumamoto Oyster and is twice the size and twice as wise. With age comes beauty and refined flavor. The Sumo is perfect for the Kumo connoisseur, and also holds its own on the grill. Try this rare "unicorn" of an oyster before they're gone!
    Our Kumamotos or "Kumos" are grown from mid-century, heirloom seeds rarely found outside Chapman's Cove, WA. Their heritage dates to the original Japanese imports from the late 1940s. Our Kumo is a gently, fulfilling oyster with remarkably consistent growth patterns. Their salted honeydew meat fills up the deep cupped shells, brimming with sweet liquor.

    Quantity: 30 count
    Flavor Profile: Honey melon and sweet lime notes. Juicy, mouthwatering oyster with a little brine and a pleasant sweetness.
    Size: Approximately 2.5 - 3 inch shell
    Age: Approximately 4 years matured

    Sumo Kumamoto oysters

    Arrived early morning on date expected in cold packing. Kept alive two days per instructions. Shucked & eaten needing only lemon juice: extremely fresh with clear delicious liquor. Am a big fan now.

    Sumo Kumo

    Received as a gift and wow. Being landlocked in the middle of the country means raw oysters are a rare treat, and fresh even more so. The Sumo Kumo flavor profile was spot on. I received 30 Sumo Kumo and 30 Petites. Next day shipping and an infrared thermometer measured their temperature at 40.5F upon arrival. Of the 60 in total, there was only one I had to cull. Outstanding freshness and flavor. I will definitely order in the future. Thank you for the early Christmas gift!

    You can't go wrong!

    Wonderful, full body oysters with a distinctive flavor (particular when compared with the oysters of the east coast). Some of the best I've had! Will certinally get more from Taylor!!

    Creamy, hint of briny flavor. I live on East Coast and only lost 2. Taylor’s packaging is simply magnificent.

    Sumo kumo

    First order and very pleased with service and quality. Hardest d... oysters I have ever shucked and that covers a lot of varieties. Maybe the blade on the knife I had was a bit broad.

    Sumo Kumo

    Loved these! We are land locked and craving oysters so we decided to try Taylor Shelfish Farms for a social distance anniversary dinner.. I’m already a fan of traditional Kumo’s so trying a larger version was a real treat. The quality was exceptional. We ate them on the half shell with a little lemon and hon wasabi. I will absolutely order again and I’m excited to try all the other muscle and clam options.
