All about caviar > Osetra Caviar
The smaller, even eggs are brown, sometimes tending towards gold, with a fruity nutty flavor and a firmer "shell" than that of Beluga, providing a more distinct texture in the mouth. The sub-category Karaburun (Imperial) has almost the same characteristics with a color that varies from yellowish-brown to golden. The color can vary considerably. The individual eggs are firmer than Beluga. Five to twenty kilograms are collected from each female.
