Seafood lovers are an amiable lot. But when it comes to the issue of which variety of live lobster they prefer, the arguments can rage like a war between two soldier crabs fighting for shelter in the same shell. If you're from the "New England Lobster School," click here to get the highest quality New England live lobster available on the Net. If you're a devotee of the "Spiny Lobster," let the Celebration begin!
The most obvious characteristic of the Spiny Lobster that distinguishes it from the traditional New England cousin is the absence of claws. Spiny Lobster lovers take comfort in knowing that their beloved beauty has a much larger tail. Most "Spinys" enter the U.S. market from the Caribbean or South Africa, and it is impossible to ship them live. "Spiny" fans know the texture and flavor of lobster is best appreciated when cooked LIVE, but have been forced to make do with inferior frozen tails. Now all that has changed. From October to mid-March, FARM 2 MARKET ships LIVE Spiny Lobsters of the genus Panulirus Interruptus directly from Santa Ynez, California.
