Description: Oyster connoisseurs recognize these as “Kumies”. They tend to be less available and more expensive as the oysters because oysters from the cold waters of Washington yield smaller quantities and have a slower growth rate. The Kumamotos from this area tend to be petite, yet very sweet. The flavor profile is very light, sweet, buttery, and not briny.
