__ AED 317.52 __

Authentic fresh black winter truffle from Perigord.

Price subject to variations based on market arrival.

The Black winter truffle, also know as the Tuber melanosporum, is a fine truffle found during winter in South Europe, particularly in the Perigord region of France. As you can tell by the name, it is black. It can also have a slight purple or brown color to it.

To the untrained eye, it can look similair to the more common chinese truffle. The two are very different and it is important not to misindentify them. The Tuber melanosporum has a much finer taste, is rarer and, as a result, more precious thant its chinese cousin. The two can be distinguished by their skin texture, the chinese one is very smooth while the Perigord one has a rough surface covered in pyramid-like very regular shapes.
