Helix Aspersa Maxima – is one of the species of garden snails that has been received by means of selection. It is mainly grown in Western Europe, along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, as well as in other countries with the most suitable climate for their dwelling. Due to its ability for quick adaptation, this species has also spread to other continents.
Large grey or “gros gris”, as the French call them, were bred at the end of the last century by French breeders. Their goal was to deduce the species of mollusks with a lighter shell, tender meat and short cycle of reproduction and growth, compared to Helix pomatia. In the process of work of breeders, species of mollusks have been bred. They have similar taste with the grape snails, grown in Burgundy.
At the end of the breeding works, the world has received the Helix Aspersa Maxima. The biggest advantage of this kind is that reaching the size, corresponding to commercial requirements, is 5-7 months, and average egg laying reaches 130-180 pieces, while the weight of the snail is about 40 grams. For example, Helix Pomatia reaches the size, at which it can be collected and eaten, only in 2-3 years, while its egg laying consists of only 40-60 pieces. The meat of “gros gris” was considered more tender than the meat of the Burgundian species.
