Tuber Melanosporum black truffles versus Tuber Aestivum, which is the difference?

TUBER MELANOSPORUM /WINTER BLACK TRUFFLES
TUBER AESTIVUM / SUMMER BLACK TRUFFLES

Black winter Truffles (Tuber Melanosporum) as its colour and harvesting time indicates, are black and harvested from December until March. More or less round shape, black in appearance and with an interior also black with whitish veins.

Tuber Melanosporum are the most valued and appreciated black truffles in gastronomy, with a fine and pungent aroma difficult to forget.

Summer truffle (Tuber Aestivum) is harvested between May and September, similar in appearance to the Melanosporum variety (black colour outside), but its pyramidal crust is much more pronounced than the Melanosporum and its interior is cream or vanilla coloured.

In our company, Manjares de la Tierra, we might offer you summer and winter black truffles, fresh, frozen and/or preserved. Our priviledged location in Sarrion, Spanish capital of the black truffles grants you the best black diamonds.
