Similarly to fine wine, abalone display fine nuances to clear differences in taste, aroma and bite depending on the species and the location in which they grow. Important are also the season in which they are harvested and the way they are processed. The best come from Baja California on the West coast of Mexico! They are rare and very expensive. We provide them under the prestigious California Mexico brand. They are perfect for special occasions and exceptional presents.
