Location: Patuxent River, St. Mary’s County, Hollywood, Maryland
Size: approx 3″ with a cup
Farming Technique: Sweet Jesus oysters are grown from oyster seed in our hatchery until they are about 1/2″. Then they are grown in bags in cages in the water column until they are about 2″ when they are transferred to tray cages until harvest at 3″. The grow bags keep our ‘babies’ safer from hungry Maryland Blue Crabs.
Why Sweet Jesus: Grown in St. Mary’s County – many fans are known to smile and exclaim: “Sweet Jesus – that’s a good oyster!”
Flavor: Sweet oyster with complex flavors – mineral and mossy; clean finish.
Farmer: Tal Petty (Founder of Hollywood Oyster Company) and the Hollywood Oyster team
