Crabs in October
CRAB CLAWS - a delectable and "oh so sweet"
tasting The majority of Florida stone crab claws are commercially
harvested off the southern tip of Florida's peninsula from
Sarasota to Ft. Lauderdale. Stone crab season opens October
15 of each year and runs through May 1.
When harvested, only the claws, where most of the meat is
located, are removed and the crab is returned to the water.
The claws will regenerate within 12 months. Commercial fishermen
cook the claws as soon as they are harvested; hence they
are always marketed "cooked". The only thing you
need to do prior to serving is to crack the shell. You can
easily accomplish this by putting the claws inside a heavy
plastic bag and using a mallet or hammer to crack. Or you
can hold them in your hand and crack by hitting with the
backside of a spoon. You will always have a smile on your
face when you eat them.
Stone Crab season runs until May - Preorders must be
placed no later than Thursday Am for Monday Pm delivery.
