Garden snails expansion and typesHelix Aspersa Maxima is a garden snail type, which was cultivated by selection. It grows in the countries with the most suitable climate. Therefore, it is met in Western Europe as well as on the seashore of the Mediterranean Sea. This kind can adapt quickly, so it is widely used in other countries of the world. Large grey or “gros gris”, was cultivated by the French breeders at the end of the previous century. They wanted to infer the species of mollusks with lighter shell, tender meat and short cycle of reproduction and growth, in comparison with Helix pomatia. As a result of work, new type of mullusks has been bred. It has similar features with the snails, cultivated in Burgundy.
The final product got the name Helix Aspersa Maxima. One of the biggest advantages of this type of snails is the period of cultivation and growth. They reach the required size and weight during 5-7 months, and lay 130-180 eggs. Their weight can reach 40 grams. For instance, Helix Pomatia reaches the size, appropriate for collection and eating during 2-3 years and lays only 40-60 eggs. In addition, gourmets and cooks admit that the meat of “gros gris” is more tender than the meat of the Burgundian snails.
