There are differing opinions on the quality of taste between a smaller lobster and a jumbo lobster in Maine. If the lobster is cooked properly, a six-pound lobster will be just as delicious as a 1 ¼ pound lobster. But care must be taken not to overcook any lobster as the meat will toughen quickly. Steaming is the best and most forgiving way to cook a jumbo lobster.
Lobster can be shipped to all 50 states Tuesday through Saturday*. (Including Alaska and Hawaii, but not Puerto Rico).
