The black truffle is out of season. If you want to buy fresh truffles, the autumn truffle (Tuber Uncinatum) is available.
White Alba truffle origines and seasons
From October to December we have availability of Tuber Magnatum. This truffle is also known as Alba truffle, Piemonte truffle or Italian truffle. Even though Italy is not among the main productive countries they have a lot of companies who sell this truffle as Italian truffle. The main origines are Croacia, Kosovo, Rumania, Bulgaria, Turkey or some other east countries.
Quality and rations
We sell mainly first quality and in strong campaigns we also sell the small sizing and the second class truffle. This truffle is valued for its aroma and strong smell. It is without a doubt the most surprising truffle in the first contact with the customer. Having a great aroma and little flavor it is usually consumed in fresh grated with thin sheets on top of a hot plate. 10 grams per person would be a very good ration of truffle.
Price of Tuber Magnatum truffle
The price is very variable depending on the offer, it is a totally wild truffle and its cultivation at the moment is not viable. So it depends a lot on the climatology and production in each campaign. It can range from 1000 euros/kg to more than 5000 euros/kg. For a ration of 10g it would represent 25€ at an average price of 2500€/kg.
