White sturgeon caviar is harvested from the largest freshwater-dwelling fish in North America. In fact, the white sturgeon is only second in size worldwide to the highly sought-after Beluga and Kaluga sturgeon varieties from the Caspian Sea. While both European varieties have been overfished, and are nearing extinction, the white sturgeon continues to thrive in fisheries across the United States, making it both an environmental- and financially practical alternative.
White sturgeon caviar is similar in appearance and taste to Osetra caviar, boasting a rich black color and medium-sized pearls that are striking both in presentation and in flavor. White sturgeon caviar is known for its nutty, creamy flavor profile and crisp, clean finish, proving once and for all that very fine caviar can now be found from domestic fisheries.
Khavyar offers a California white sturgeon caviar sourced from sustainably raised sturgeon raised in carefully controlled surroundings utilizing artesian well water and specially prepared diets to ensure that each sturgeon produces roe that will meet the exacting standards of Khavyar, and deliver an unparalleled luxury experience to each customer.
Take a cue from the California white sturgeon’s foreign siblings and serve this roe the way you’d present a Beluga caviar— free from garnishes, which may detract from its flavor. Simply placed on toast points or served straight from the tin is ideal.
