This Caspian Sea
caviar consists of smaller roe than that of the other two main caviar
varieties. However, what it lacks in size, the Sevruga more than makes
up in it’s intense flavor. Sevruga caviar (acipenser stellatus) is
saltier and richer in taste, which is why it is often referred to as the “Strong Sturgeon”.
affordable price is reflective of the fact that the Sevruga sturgeon is
rather common; it is not rare like the Beluga. This sturgeon is also
particularly quick to reproduce, developing viable eggs as early as
seven years of age. Noted as the smallest of the Caspian Sea sturgeons,
Sevruga rarely weighs over 25 kilograms.
texture consists of a mid-toned gray roe that is robust with flavor. It
also notable for its rather crunchy texture and deep flavors of salt
and butter. The other main varieties of Iranian and Russian caviar are
more delicate and smooth in comparison. Compared to the Iranian
Sevruga, our Russian Sevruga is slightly less salt-infused in flavor
and consists of a brighter roe.
