CANADA CUP OYSTER® – PEI, Canada
The Canada Cups oyster is a round, 3" - 3 ½" medium-choice oyster farm raised in Prince Edward Island. The consistent size and well-formed cups define this oyster. Natural spat is caught and raised in a hatchery until they are 2 years old. At this point, the oysters are spread on the bottom of Lennox Island Channel which is a tributary of Malpeque Bay and allowed to grow free until they reach market size. A mild to strong salinity is followed by a mild creamy flavor; a must have on your raw bar menu as the taste just brings you to the ocean. Availability is typically strong from spring until early winter. An American Mussel Harvesters' exclusive.
