Flat oyster

A flat oyster is round and owes its name to its flat upper shell. This oyster is the only real European oyster or rather the only native oyster of our region. A flat oyster only grows in the best and most nutritious places and demands a lot of work, expertise and patience from the farmer. It matures over four years. A flat oyster is a rare delicacy.
