GROWN IN Stump Sound near Topsail
CULTIVATED BY James Hargrove of Middle Sound Mariculture
Grown in the famous Stump Sound, Tarheel Tiderunners have a classic Carolina oyster flavor: high salinity with a buttery, meaty flavor. The flavor lingers, giving you a taste of the coast for minutes after you slurp down your first Tiderunner.
This oyster is like the cultivated equivalent to the wild Stump Sound oyster. They have a very similar flavor, but Tarheel Tiderunners are clean, single, and easy to shuck.
