Summer Oysters

The opposite of C. gigas, i.e., these are best eaten during the hottest months of the year, or those without an “r” in their name.  Some of these oysters can grow to immense sizes but I bought these fairly average-sized ones as they are cheaper.  Still, the flesh inside is much larger than regular Pacific oysters.   These are from Miyagi Prefecture, and were quite delicious and strong-tasting.
