Truffles thrive only in a narrow band of weather conditions.
Black truffles, for example, need mild winters, no frost, warm (not hot) summers, and dry winters.
Truffles are so well hidden, that they are very difficult to find.
The naked human eye is unlikely to spot a truffle.
Truffles have a taste that is once eaten and never forgotten.
Umami and earthy, with hints of garlic and an underlying nuttiness, the truffle is a flavor experience like no other. Truffles smell like a damp fall day but in the best way possible.



Different types of Truffles

(The most important commercial species in today's market)
Burgundy - Tuber Uncinatum Chatin
Black Truffle - Tuber Melanosporum Vittadini
Summer Truffle - Tuber Aestivum Vittandini
Most are unknown to the consumer. These lesser-known species collected from the wild often have an unreliable, inferior supply; or rather an uncertain supply of those willing to hunt and collect them. Prices often depend on availability, quality, and where the truffles are being sold.
