Malpeque Oyster – PEI, Canada

This is one of the most famous northern Atlantic cold-water oysters available today. Although the name is often plagiarized, it has a history as big as its fan club. The oysters can be farmed or wild and fall under two primary categories of “standard” or “choice" grade. Within these categories, the oysters can run small, medium or large. Naturally growing standard-grade Malpeques have a curvaceous flaked shell that is hardened from growing untamed in the natural elements. Choice grades are often farmed and chipped throughout their growth cycle creating a quintessential teardrop shaped shell. American Mussel Harvesters always packs and sells these oysters according to the grade desired. Although the flavor across the grades remains the same, shucking and plate presentation of the oysters is much better in the choice- grade shell stock. The smallest of any Malpeque will start around 2 ¾” with the largest culled grades reaching 5 - 6 inches. Culled from the glacial depths of Malpeque Bay, this oyster will bring a taste of the maritime provinces to you. Availability is typically strong from spring until early winter or until the thickest of ice flows consume the bay.
