Truffles (Tuber) are a type of fungi. Depending on how they look from the inside and outside they divide into three groups: red, white and black, also called ‘black diamond’.
They have long been a symbol throughout theworld of luxury, prosperity and gourmetcuisine in general. Known since ancient times, they were considered by the Greeks and the Romans to be a natural aphrodisiac.
Truffles are underground fungi that grow in the roots of certain species of trees in symbiosis with them – poplar, linden, oak, willow, cherry, hornbeam, hazel. They are very rare, which is why their price is high. Their rates depend on the type of truffle, the quality of it and in which country they are traded.
