This is a hybrid of the Acipenser Schrenckii and Huso Dauricus. The caviar from China has a good sized egg with delicate but intense almond cream flavour.

King's Fine Food regularly performs DNA-testing of all of its caviar and was the first UK food company to introduce this.
The word ‘caviar’ is a Persian term that means cake of strength. It’s a common assumption that the Russians began extracting and consuming caviar, when actually it was the Persians in the 16thcentury. They believed it had healing properties. In the 18thcentury, caviar was regarded as the food of the poor until royal chefs introduced Russian Tsars and nobility to it. This set in motion the demand for caviar as a delicacy – until 2008, when wild sturgeon fishing was banned under the Bern Convention, an international agreement to protect animals and the environment. Since then, all legally produced caviar has come from sturgeon farms.
