French Summer Truffles (Tubr Astivum) Available June-mid September French Black summer truffles are a milder variety of truffle that we stock during the European summer. They have a black outer skin and a creamy, greyish flesh with a mild aroma and mid-range earthy flavour. They are excellent for the truffle ‘novice’ as a good starting point to experience seeing what truffles are all about – particularly as they tend to be about 1/3 of the price of a winter truffle. This season they have and are selling for $1 per gram or $1000 per kilo. Available for pick up only from Mushroom Man’s Mushroom Shop – Stall 68 Central Market Adelaide.
