Black Winter Truffles. The most aromatic, the queen of black truffles, very versatile in the kitchen and the one preferred by chefs. Known as Perigord due to their French origin in that region, they are grown with much success in Spain. They require the yearly inoculation of the roots of the holm oak (Quercus ilex or carrasca) with a mixture of spores of the truffle, soft soil, ash, sugar and coffee grounds. Spain has taken a leadership position in the harvesting of black winter truffles with declining production in France and Italy.
