Large Sydney Rocks
Shell appearance: A prominent undulating frill that imparts texture. A steely basalt colour to the shell.
Flesh appearance: The dark rim on the inside of the shell starkly contrasts the milky white flesh.
Aroma: Ripe melon or banana
Taste: Baked cream characteristic. It lingers on the back pallet with a nice sweetness like young gingery spice. Both juicy and meaty.
SYDNEY ROCK OYSTERS
Sydney Rock Oysters grow naturally from SE Qld to the VIC/NSW border. They are characterised by a deep, rich and sweet flavour that is truly unique.
Our grade size for large rocks is 55-65 mm top lid length - this is measured from the hinge to where the lid meets the start of the new growth frill. Our grading machine has a variance of up to 10 mm so please do expect both smaller and larger sizes – although we do try to get a consistent size, sometimes smaller and bigger ones slip through!
All Signature Oysters are delivered live (unopened / unshucked).
