Tuber Aestivum (Summer Truffle)


Tuber Aestivum, commonly known as Summer Truffles, are found in various regions of Europe. These truffles have a rough exterior with a blackish-brown surface and a marbled interior. They belong to the Tuberaceae family. Summer truffles grow naturally in calcareous soils under trees like oak, hazel, and poplar. Unlike other truffle varieties, they cannot be cultivated commercially, relying solely on natural conditions. Summer truffles enhance the flavor of dishes like scrambled eggs, salads, risottos, and pasta.
