Oysters South Carolina

Oysters straight off the beds.

If the oyster was a prettier creature, it might have appeared on the South Carolina flag. As it is the SC flag is beautiful, displaying a crescent moon and the palmetto palm depicted in white over a deep blue background.

Oysters are visible all along the Intracoastal Waterway, especially through the low country of South Carolina. In fact, oysters grow all along the East Coast and just as wine takes on flavor notes from the earth, oysters exhibit flavors that come about from the environment in which they grow.
