Tuber Aestivum Vitt.
The Summer Truffle (Tuber aestivum Vitt.) is also known as the ‘scorzone’ because of its round and particularly thick coating, which allows it to be distinguished from the Fine Black Truffle at a glance.
Compared to its renowned cousin, the Summer Truffle is considered less prized and can be found at much lower market prices; however, its scent and flavour can give great satisfaction to even the most demanding palates.
In Tuscany, the harvest period is between 1 June and 15 November.
These characteristics make it an ideal product for those looking for a versatile truffle, pleasant and with a delicate flavor at competitive prices. In cooking, the Summer Truffle is mainly used for the preparation of truffle sauces.
As the name suggests, the Summer truffle reaches full maturation during the summer and it is the only one among all the edible truffle species.
