Blackberry Point

Source: Chef’s Resource

Blackberry Point Oysters are a high-end oyster cultivated in the waters of Northwestern Prince Edward Island in the estuary where the Foxley River and the Conway Narrows meet. While still very young, oysters from the region are graded for quality and the ones with the best uniformity and cup definition are moved the Blackberry Point lease.

Blackberry Points are hand planted on the bottom of the estuary where they are closely monitored and regularly manicured throughout their growth until ready for market. They are available most of the year, even in the dead of winter, with the exception of early winter and the spring thaw. During these times the ice is not solid enough to work on. Blackberry Point oysters are hand harvested.

Blackberry Point oysters are a larger oyster, 3.5 inches on average, with deep cups and full, plump meats which fill the shell.
