True foodies don't want to miss a chance to try a native English lobster while in England. It is generally more fresh, sweet, and fleshy than lobster from Canada or America. Though lobsters can be found in the city markets throughout the year, particularly during Christmas, in fact, the season of native lobsters falls during the summer months from June to August. Do not be shy to ask the waiter for a native English lobster. When raw they have a blue shell, but during the cooking procedure lobsters turn bright red. It is generally better to order smaller lobsters, as the bigger ones may be older and sometimes less enjoyable.
