Kumamoto oysters grow smaller and more deeply cupped than most species.
Their salty, sweet flavor and smaller size make them perfect for novice oyster fans.
Oyster bars rarely offer Kumamotos, due to the difficulty of growing them and consequent small supply ... and they're well worth seeking out!
Kumamoto oysters (Crassostrea sikamea) are named for their native Japanese bay, but ours are grown on inter-tidal long lines in northern California's Humboldt Bay.
