Olde Salt Oyster Flavor Profile Characteristics
Olde Salt Oysters are one of the oyster appellations from the Chesapeake Bay region off the Maryland and Virginia coasts. They are rack & bag farmed oysters. Rack & bag cultured oysters are grown in mesh cages or bags which are generally staked about one to two feet off the bottom. Olde Salt oysters are very salty with a true taste of fresh sea water. They grow quickly and usually reach a 3″ market size in about 6 months.
