Description
 
Tuber melanosporum, more commonly referred to as the perigord truffle, or black diamond, is a highly regarded truffle species. Although named after the Perigord region in France, these truffles are harvested through out Europe, most commonly in France, Spain, and Italy, and are usually harvested between December and March. When ripe, perigords should have a very dark, almost black inner flesh, and an intense aroma. The flavor and aroma of a perigord is extremely rich, robust, earthy, and chocolaty. Although their perfume is not as strong as the all mighty alba truffle, the flavor is known to be the greatest of any truffle species. Perigord truffles are extremely versatile and are a wonderful addition to any dish with the proper presentation and preparation.
