What is a Truffle? The black diamonds from Sarrion, Spanish capital of black truffles (Tuber Melanosporum).

What is a Truffle?

The truffle is an underground fungus that lives in symbiosis with the roots of certain deciduous trees, typically holm oak (Quercus Ilex), oak (Quercus fagaceas) and hazel (Quercus avellana). All varieties of truffle usually have a roundish and irregular shape.



Truffle´s varieties:

There are several kinds of truffles, but the Black Truffle (Tuber Melanosporum) is highly prized as in international haute cuisine, and considered as the "black diamond" of the gastronomy.



In Spain, the most reputed variety is the black truffle (Tuber Melanosporum Vitt). They has a strong and peppery smell, and exquisite flavor. Harvesting takes place from late November to mid-March. 
Tuber Aestivum black truffle or summer truffle grows from summer until early fall. It can be distinguished by its angular wrinkles. The color is a brownish black and the flesh has an intense, characteristic perfume and flavor.


Around 50% of the global production of Black Truffle  (Tuber Melanosporum) comes from Spain and the town of Sarrion (Teruel) has the greatest surface of planted oak trees in the entire world. 


Manjares de la Tierra facilities, located in the middle of the Sarrion town,  stands to benefit from its strategic location,  just next door of the orchards, to be able to send out  fresh truffles to any part of Spain and overseas.


If you want to buy this culinary treasure, fresh, frozen and/or preserved, please do not hesitate to contact us for any information you might require.

Where to find truffles? In Sarrion, Spanish Capital of Black Truffles (Tuber Melanosporum)


A fresh black truffle has an incomparable aroma that is much appreciated in "haute cuisine" gastronomy all over the world, where it is celebrated as the culinary “black diamond.” 
Black truffles are the hypogeous mushroom or fruiting body of the fungus, Tuber melanosporum Vitt.


Black truffles (Tuber Melanosporum) have traditionally been found in wild areas. But, lately, wild truffles have become scarce, so trees previously inoculated with the truffle mycelium are now being planted. Such plantations have been set up in most of the historical truffle areas, especially in Teruel (Aragón), in northeast Spain. The trees are carefully tended and pruned. Sarrion is the largest Spanish plantation area with more than 3.000 Ha cultivation.
This is a rugged, mountainous area with a harsh climate yet, surprisingly, just an hour's drive away from the mild Valencia coast.
Sarrion, Teruel, plantation
Manjares de la Tierra is a company original from Sarrion, specialized in the cultivation and processing of black truffles (Tuber Melanosporum & Aestivum). We are prepared to supply  fresh truffles not only during the season, but also throughout the whole season, either frozen and/or preserved in many different ways: truffle in brandy, truffle in its own juice, truffle juice and several pâtés and creams based on truffle. 




We are one of the most important Spanish black truffles exporters since our origin. Here you can find a link with and interesting article beeing dedicated to our company and products in the most famous and official website and magazine about FOODS FROM SPAIN
