Chinese truffle
  • Scientific names

There is controversy on the scientific names of Chinese truffles. Based on the knowledge from most people including the truffle scientists and specialists from abroad, the Chinese truffle we're exporting are:

Tuber sinensis or Tuber Indicum- winter black truffle, hard shell, brownish skin, dark or brown meat with white veins, with lasting aroma, available from Nov. 10th to Mar. 20th. NOTE: some people think it's Tuber indicum - the name implies its origin is in India. But, we don't know any truffle suppliers in India.

Tuber Himalayensis - winter black truffle, very similar to Tuber Melanosporum, hard shell, dark and polygonal textured skin, very dark meat with little white veins, strong and lasting aroma, usually smaller and more difficult to find than Tuber sinensis, available from Nov. 20th to Feb. 20th.

Summer white truffle - There are several types of white truffles.  The most common one is  brownish with smooth skin, white meat, a little bit juicy, lasting aroma.

  • Picking areas

95% percent of Chinese truffles come from Yunnan (50%), Sichuan (35%) and Tibet (10%). The two truffle collection and trading centers in China are Kunming (where we're based), the capital city of Yunnan Province; and Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan Province.

Tuber sinensis, Tuber Indicum and summer white truffle - Yunna's Chuxiong and dali (the part in due north of Yunnan bordering on Xichang, Sichuan province, and the part in the northwest of Yunnan), Sichuan's Xichang (the part in southwest of Sichuan bordering on Chuxiong, Yunnan Province)

Tuber Himalayensis - Linzhi, Tibet; Zhongdian, Yunnan (the part bordering on Tibet); Ganzi, Sichuan (the part bordering on Tibet)

NOTE: Some suppliers claim they offer Tuber himalayensis in large quantity - this is NOT true. Due to the high altitude (3,000 - 4,500 meter above sea level), it's much more difficult to harvest, collect and transport Tuber himalayensis and so the output is much smaller than Tuber sinensis or Tuber Indicum. In fact, only a few suppliers in China supply Tuber himalayensis.

  • A few words

Chinese black truffle are not the same one as the black truffle from Perigod and our white truffle is not Tuber magnatum. However, "economy through quality" is the point.
