Black truffles are dark brown to black at maturity with numerous white veins. The intense aroma and flavor of the truffle totally captivate the palate, its aphrodisiac qualities add to its allure as a food that delights the senses. To the nose they have the wholly unique smell of truffle, musky and mushroomy, and on the palate the taste is variable; they have a slightly bitter note finishing with a delicate hazelnut flavor.
There are two species of truffle available from May through December: tuber aestivum, the common summer truffle, harvested from May until September and tuber uncinatum a.k.a. burgundy truffle, harvested from September until December. Both of these truffle species are paler color and have a more subtle aroma than the winter truffle (tuber melanosporum).
