Though there are multiple species of Oregon black truffles, leucangium carthusianum is the most common, found in both Oregon and Washington. Harvested late autumn into spring by highly trained dogs, they have a fruity-musky aroma, markedly different from the Perigord black. Aroma of underripe pineapple, green apple, blueberry, and Amarena cherry, with an undertone of nuttiness and wet forest floor. Has a texture of moist Parmesan and fresh almond. The exterior is a smooth but warty black and the gleba is grey to grey green. Season is typically December through March, although we get some of our best harvests through June, depending on the bounty of the year.
