The Tuber uncinatum grows in similar places as the tuber magnatum pico and in similar seasons (September -January). Although they are subterranean, you can sometimes find them in a truffle-laden forest peaking out around the perimeter of trees. The Autumn black truffle has a delicious “nutty” taste that makes it indispensable in the kitchen. It’s versatility in use and ease of storage is a gratifying choice. It ranks as third of highest quality and most revered truffles, making it the most affordable and best for experimenting for the home cook. As with all of our truffles, we only source the best, wild and fresh from a most reliable source – our family.
