You Get: 25 Belons
Belons are in a class of their own, both literally and figuratively. They are the only oyster we sell that are wild and harvested by hand in the freezing cold Maine waters. There also isn’t a single other oyster that comes close to these flavor-wise: strong salt and full with a coppery, metallic finish (truly a taste for the most bivalve curious out there).
Location: Glidden Farms - Brunswick, Maine
Size: 3.5" in diameter
How They are Grown: Wild and hand harvested in scuba gear (in Maine, in the freezing cold). Banded by hand and packed cup down so they retain their liquor.
Why They're Unique: Belons are their own species (Ostrea Edulis) and the only non Virginica found on the Eastern seaboard. They arrived in the U.S. from France for a University of Maine experiment, and when it ultimately failed, they stayed.
