Black Truffle(Tuber Melanosporum)
SEASONfrom december to march
Grown in the south of France, but also in Spain, Australia and Italy, it is one of the most popular Truffle.
More or less round in shape, this truffle may reach, or even exceed, the size of an apple, although its weight does not usually surpass the 60g mark.Its skin bears pyramid-shaped scales and the colour of the flesh changes from grey to a black with fine white veins when mature. A good truffle should be firm to the touch.
