Black truffles grow in the ground near the oaks and birches. With black-and-brown skin, these mushrooms have a red-brown color of flesh inside. Truffles are distinguished with a strong, persistent, original and a very distinct aroma and slightly nutty flavor. Believe it or not, this flavor also adds to the cost of truffles. Yet, such correlation is understandable if we learn more about how truffles are harvested and stored. 

The truffle harvest can vary greatly from year to year, which certainly affects the Black Truffles price. The high cost of these fungi caused by specificity of conditions for their growth, the method of collection, storage and of course, the refined taste and aroma.
