A deep ruby red seaweed, growing from a tiny holdfast attached to rocks and other seaweeds.

It is a small seaweed that only grows in abundance when the conditions are just right. Picked on strong spring tides during autumn.

Intense flavour and vibrant red colour help it pack a punch. Makes an exquisite seasoning for lamb or fish. Great for buttery sauces, adding a smoky, umami flavour.

We have developed a detailed knowledge of harvest seasons. Specifically, it may be possible to pick small quantities of a variety early in a season, but we delay first harvest until the rates reach commercial scale. Indicative seasons for our key species are given below. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about production months.
