Types of Black Truffle “Tuber Melanosporum”
The black truffle of the Aragonese Pyrenees together with the black truffle of Teruel and Soria are the result of the perfect harmony in the magical Spanish ecosystem, which, thanks to its environment and climate, allows us to enjoy the black diamond that these lands hide.
The morphology of the black truffle can be round or with a very irregular surface, this will depend exclusively on the texture of the land where it is grown but it does not affect the taste or smell so characteristic of the authentic black truffle certified tuber melanosporum.
We classify our truffles in four different categories:
Big and round truffles, very hard to find and therefore forming a single category. Without any doubt the most demanded ones, for it´s perfect external aspect, as well es it´s extraordinary organoleptical characteristics.
Large non-round truffles or medium round truffles, undoubtedly a category that will satisfy even the most demanding palates. Are the most common ones and we can generally find them in specialized gourmet shops.
Small rounded truffles or large non-rounded truffles that may have some small fiction from the extraction. Normally used by professionals in the sector to produce truffled products in industry, although offering all the organoleptic qualities.
As its name indicates, are the remains of truffles that during their extraction suffered some fiction or damage and do not keep a homogeneous uniformity, maintain all their smell and taste but aesthetically have been affected, usually used for sauces or dishes where they are served dissolved.
