Named for eastern North Carolina’s beloved pirate lore, the Pirate Pearl is a true treasure tucked away in the pristine, tea-colored waters of the Bay River. While generally lower on the salinity scale, the meat has a reddish hue, and often a unique flavor we haven’t seen in any of our other NC oysters.
