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.

At Seminalia we specialize in American truffles and wild foraged goods. Co-founders Vincent and Camille have spent the past decade in three Michelin starred restaurants and James Beard winning kitchens and dining rooms growing a deep love and knowledge of truffles unique ingredients and the story of the foragers and farmers who pull them from the earth. But we’re not resting on our laurels to run a company. We started a company to be the catalyst for an industry. We firmly believe that domestic American truffles truly rival their European counterparts.

We have the opportunity to bring American truffles to center stage and want to share them with the world. Seminalia is dedicated to bringing truffles sourced from truffiere orchards and wild forest lands across the United States to restaurants across the country. Our company is rigorously driven by an environmental focus and commitment to sustainability and sees this as a moral responsibility to our earth and the next generation.
