A powerful aroma with sweet forest-floor notes and a distinct flavour that drives foodies crazy, this truffle is known as the “black diamond” of the kitchen. The flesh of a ripe Tuber melanosporum is a dark black-purple with white-pink veins running through it creating a beautiful marble type effect. Truffles are made all the more valuable with a short season and shelf life, so be in quick and enjoy while in season!
