CЯU Beluga Caviar
Huso Huso x Acipenser baerii
As the world's most renowned sturgeon species, Beluga is prized for its large, firm gray to black eggs that always exude a decadent, briny creaminess. There's a reason it has been hailed as the most expensive and prized original Caspian species for hundreds of years.
To protect and replenish the almost wiped-out wild Beluga populations, it is illegal to import to the US unless it's a hybrid species. Our Beluga hybrid is crossed with one of our favorite species, the Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baerii), which also flaunts a smooth, buttery flavor and similar grayish to amber/black color. We've tried all the Beluga hybrids available, this is our favorite.
