BLACK SUMMER TRUFFLE (SALE BY WEIGHT) The summer truffle or scorzone, scientific name TUBER AESTIVUM VITT, sometimes reaches considerable size and is very similar to the black truffle. The external surface shows brown pyramidal warts. It has an intense aromatic smell, but when cut it distinguishes it from the precious black one, because the gleba does not become dark, but tends to a dark yellow. It grows in both sandy and clayey soils, in deciduous forests but also in pine forests. It is highly appreciated and is used for the production of sausages and sauces.
