Magnatum pico

Description: The scientific name is Tuber Magnatum, namely “tycoons”. It has an un-confoundable and unique strong scent. You can find it from late summer until early winter. The white truffle has an irregular shape, its size is generally large, at around 50-400 grams. Exceptionally even higher than 1 kg. One of the largest fresh truffles.​


Description: Black winter truffles, also known as Périgord truffles. Périgord truffle is normally round, and slightly bumpy. The flesh is noir/violet at maturity, with fine veins that are well marked and divided. White when cut open, the flesh turns red on contact with air. It grows in hilly areas in symbiosis with hazelnut and oak trees. To the nose the perfume is of a dry mushroom, humus, and wet forests. In the mouth the truffle is crunchy and soft simultaneously; at first spicy with a slight taste of black radish, then a hint of hazelnut, with a finish of wooded forest floor, sometimes earth when tasting the skin.


The most common and widely consumed truffle, the summer black truffle scientific named Tuber Aestivum. This truffle can reach notable dimensions and is very similar to the black truffle. The outer surface shows pyramidal warts of brown color. It has a strong aromatic scent, but at the cut it differs from the black fine one, because the glebe does not become dark, but tends to a dark yellow. It grows in both sandy and clayey soils, in deciduous forests, pine forests and even in the old olive groves.It is very appreciated in the kitchen and it is used for the production of sausages and sauces, creams and oils. There is also a winter variant of this kind of truffle, known as uncinated truffle (Tuber Uncinatum).


Description: The white spring truffle truffle, scientific name Tuber Borchii. By the outside can be confused with Tuber Magnatum, because it originally presents the same features, irregular, smooth and of white color, but when it arrives to maturation, it becomes darker. Even the glebe, from initially being clear, becomes dark. The smell is the feature that distinguishes it from the white truffle, because, if in the beginning it is soft and pleasant, in a later time becomes garlicky and nauseous. It grows in calcareous soils, often in deciduous and coniferous woods.


Description: Tuber Brumale is rather similar with Tuber Aestivum and Uncinatum in terms of shape and colour, but its surface is smoother and the so callerd warts are smaller. The winter truffles do not grow as much in diameter as the other truffles,usually they reach the size of nutts and their smell is a strong, musk-like. Their external colour is dark brown or black with blue shades, while the interiour is white or dark grey marbled, and the ribbes are widder than at the Aestivum and Uncinatum.


Description: It resembles Tuber Aestivum, having an irregular round form, a more poignant smell and taste than Aestivum. Its exteriour is dark brown,while the interiour is brown-red with white-grey ribbed, having a marble like aspect. It is usualy found in the same places like summer truffle, in the chalky soil of oak and hornbeam forests. Culinary wise among the most versatile fresh truffles.
