littleneck vs middleneck clams-which are smaller?

mike frank | Oct 20, 2002 10:56 PM

i have a friendly wager with a restaurant owner who is originally from long island and he told me middleneck clams are smaller than littleneck clams.I say this is not true.Can any chowhound out there tell me if i am right or wrong,and what cookbook or book on food i could use as an authoritative source to back up my contention that littlenecks are smaller than middlenecks,then come cherrystones.Thanks for the assistance.
