Black Summer Truffle

0.00

The summer truffle (Tuber aestivum) is found in almost all European countries. 

The flavor, size and color of summer truffles (Italian: tartufo estivo) is similar to that of burgundy truffles, but their aroma is less intense and the flesh (gleba) is a paler hazel color.[2]

As their name suggests, summer truffles are harvested earlier than burgundy truffles, from May to August.[2] They are most often found in the southern part of the distribution area of the species, notably in theMediterranean climate areas of France, Italy and Spain.
