Black Summer Truffle (Tuber Aestivum) Availability: Apr-Sept.
•The most plentifully harvested truffle. The fruiting body ranges from the size of a hazelnut to that of an orange. The skin is black. The odor is pleasant and can be quite intense in wales , resembling that of hazelnuts and mushrooms . The main period for ripening runs from May to September. This truffle is commonly found in the United Kingdom , Europe, or wherever there is limestone terrain.
Method 1 is our preferred way to store fresh truffles. Remove from the box and store in a basket or container that lets the air circulate around truffles. This inhibits white mould forming on the outside, you may notice the truffles lose a few grams of weight but this concentrates the flavour. Truffles can be kept for 7-10 days using this method, check daily for hardness, once truffles start going soft use immediately. Method 2 If you want to flavour additional foods such as rice or eggs store truffles in the rice or eggs and the aroma will permeate into the foods, be aware that if you store for more than 3 days in the rice or eggs a white mould may appear on truffles ( do not be put of by the mould it is harmless and can be washed off ! ) Enjoy

Was quick, easy and product as described. Very nice truffle. I made an error with delivery option and received a phone call within minutes to check it, which was nice. I had asked for Saturday delivery by mistake. All good. Highly recommend.

Delivery as expected
Nice single large truffle. Welsh ! Rather delicate in aroma but I wanted to have uk ingredients to create a Coronation dish in honour of the king who was Prince of Wales for so long. Firm truffle. Light innard in dark black outer crust

Another perfectly delicious truffle has arrived. The quality is excellent the taste is to die for. The Welsh Truffle Company's high standards are by far the best from the UK. No offence to other companies offering Truffle and I've tried them all this company has everything you can want from fresh truffles. These are hand picked truffles not a truffle that's been shipped in. Simply put they are the best.

Truffles were delicious and generous in size. The only issue we faced was with our courier who delayed delivery by 24 hours meaning our meal could not be made on the intended evening (wife's birthday).

Thank you Matt!
Thank you, Matt! I admire people who are passionate about what they do. From the first communication to the delivery of the beautiful truffle - every aspect of the process was outstanding. Highly recommended.
Arrived well packaged and quickly. Smelled, looked and tasted Fresh. Had planned to make it last by putting some in oil and freezing some. Ended up scoffing the lot. Absolutely delicious. Gives me shivers thinking about it! Absolutely over the moon these are now grown on our doorstep.
Matt was a pleasure to deal with. Excellent communication. The autumn truffle I ordered arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Couldn't fault the product or service......5 stars.
I ordered a bulk of Tuber Aestivum for my house warming party from The Welsh Truffle Co., and seriously they did not disappoint. Their delivery was on time, their employees are nice and the truffle--NO WORDS ON HOW GREAT THEY WERE.
