Black Russian Caspian Osetra Caviar 4 oz ea. x 3+
Osetra (Oscietra or Asetra) caviar comes from the Osetra sturgeon (Acipenser persicus or Acipenser gueldenstaedtii), weighing 50-400 pounds and living up to 50 years. Osetra caviar ranges from warm brown to green-gray in color, to dark blue to jet black or even yellow. Osetra caviar is said to have a nutty flavour and so is prized as an elite caviar with medium size grains.
The Ossetra sturgeon is much smaller than the Beluga sturgeon (Huso huso). As caviar, it is of firmer texture than the more delicate Beluga caviar.
Considered by many the golden child of the sturgeon family, Osetra caviars are by far the most popular and sought after varieties of Caspian caviars.
All of our caviar comes in separate 4 oz glass jars and packaged 3+ jars for the most convenient and favorable transportation for our consumers. Shelf life up to 01/05/2014.
