Watch House Point Oysters Flavor Profile
Watch House Point oysters are an East Coast Virginica oyster farmed using the rack & bag cultivation method. They are grown in oyster beds on the historic Watch House Point region near the southern tip of Virginia’s Eastern Shore where the Westerhouse Creek empties into Chesapeake Bay.
Watch House Points are consistently shaped with deep cups, a very forward brininess and finish with hints of cucumber and melon.
