Kusshi Oysters

The Kusshi oyster is a Miyagi oyster that has been grown by a method where the oysters are grown in floating trays or bags and are tumbled into a bonsai type (small) oyster. The product is small and has very deep bowls, like the Kumamoto. Kusshi production is mostly from British Columbia. Growers in Puget Sound are also moving some of their production to the Kusshi method. Kusshi means ‘precious’ in Japanese.

FLAVOUR PROFILE: Clean, mildly sweet, delicate, meaty

The Kusshi’s exquisite flavour starts salty, transitions to sweet, and finishes with a delightfully mild fruity taste.
