Hog Island Kumamotos vs. XS sweetwaters

cvhound | Dec 11, 2008 08:17 PM

I need to purchase a bushel of oysters for family members who are huge oyster fans. My husband and I have been trying to get out to Hog Island in S/F to do a side-by-side tasting, but we've both been working tons of OT, so I thought I'd ask fellow CHs to weigh in.

The person who answered the phone at their farm in Marshall described the Kumamotos as rich & buttery and the sweetwaters as minerally & sweet. Which variety do you prefer and why? Thanks in advance for your help!
