Characteristics

CharacteristicsMisty Point oysters are from the renowned growing area of Pope’s Bay, Virginia. These cocktail sized oysters (1.5″) contain a surprisingly robust flavor. Its briny, earthy, almost sweet meat is delightfully chewy. They are a good savoring size; you really can focus on the subtle notes of lettuce and grass.
