Kusshi oysters come from the Japanese translation for “Ultimate”. This small, deeply cupped Pacific oyster is grown to mimic the outstanding characteristics of Kumamoto oyster. They are tray grown in a very unique process off of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. While Kusshi oysters are tray raised, they are tumbled regularly to take the length out of the growth, causing the live oyster to grow deeper in profile. This effort creates a consistently deep cupped, very meaty little oyster, appealing to beginner oyster eaters and old pros alike. Live Kusshi oysters are worth trying!
