Blue Points have been a fixture on oyster menus since the early 1800s when wild oysters were harvested in Long Island's Great South Bay near the town of Blue Point, NY. These bottom-planted, Long Island Sound oysters are harvested from the famous oyster beds of Norwalk and Westport, Connecticut. Shallow waters, swift currents and sandy bottoms provide the conditions necessary for raising them to be unique in shape and color. A Queen Victoria favorite, these oysters are an American staple and a sure crowd-pleaser.
Grow Out Method: Oyster seed is upwelled, then grown in suspended mesh bags, and finally moved to growout trays.
