In Italy, white truffles (Tuber Magnatum Pico) are picked from the ground starting at the end of August, but the official season opening period begins in October.

The photo below shows the white truffles that our truffle hunters/partners have been picking since a month ago.

There are many reasons why we cannot quickly import it and give it to you, and I would like to tell you two of them.

First of all, it is difficult and risky to export without receiving a quarantine certificate from the agency before the harvest period.

The second reason is that although white truffles are currently in the ground, they have not yet ripened properly, so if they are shipped to Korea by plane, there is a high possibility that they will arrive in bad condition at the destination.

Even if it arrives in good condition, the shelf life is very short and the product deteriorates quickly.

Let’s take a look at how to distinguish between ripened and unripened white truffles!

The photo on the left shows a white truffle that looks very bright white, but this product has not yet ripened. If you receive a product like this, there is a very high chance that you will barely be able to smell it.

The product you see on the right is a white truffle that has been presented and aged to perfection. The closer it is to the color of a hazelnut, the more ripe it is.

Things to keep in mind when purchasing white truffles: Check the color immediately before purchasing.
