Tuber brumale is a wide spread truffle in France and Italy as well as in the Balkans. In the recent years in Greece large quantities have been hunted. This truffle likes limestone soils just like t. Melanosporum and increased levels of humidity in combination with clay rich soils. It is a truffle that easily adapts to the different terroir variations.
Commercial value: relatively high due to the sweet and pleasant aroma but also its organoleptic characteristics.
It is often combined with the more valuable black truffle for obvious reasons even though their differences are easily detected by the eye.
