Black Summer truffles (Tuber aestivum) are one of the highly-prized truffles used in cuisine around the world. Summer truffles grow mostly in the lime-rich soil of the Mediterranean region of Europe, and are typically harvested from May to August. These black truffles can be shaved onto many dishes including meats, pastas, salads, soups, and more.
Our summer truffles are harvested by hand with the help of truffle hunting dogs. They are cleaned by hand and imported fresh from Italy to ensure you receive the best possible product and have a perfect experience.
Storage: These truffles can be stored in your refrigerator at a temperature of 35.5°F – 37.5°F (2°C - 3°C). They should be individually wrapped in paper towels, and stored in an airtight container. As the paper towels absorb water, make sure to change the paper towels daily. Please visit our Storage Guide for more information, tips, and techniques.
