Ayme Truffe - Domaine Bramarel

Truffle Ayme, the delicious truffle of France

called "The musky".

Available between December 1st and Mach 31St.
The production of this truffle is very small: 5 % of the black truffle production.
Often it is confused with the black truffle. Its size, its colour, its skin, its spores, its production period and its trees that serve as a host, are identical. The gleba is white, greyish, then blackish-violet without the reddish and purple shade of the Tuber Mélanosporum. Finally in becomes brownish and blackish but less dark than the black truffle.
The veins are much larger and there is more space between them; its skin is removable. Its smell is aggressive but agreeable. Thanks to this perfume the Tuber Brumale is the one that is easier to identify than the other ones. Its taste is less significant than the Tuber Melanosporum’s.

It has a spiced smell, of musky, and of course a risk of confusion with the tuber melanosporum.
