A sort of highly valued culinary fungus called a truffle grows underground in close proximity to the roots of some trees.

For generations, truffles have been prized as a delicacy and are highly sought after.

Truffle Varieties – There are many different varieties of truffles, but the black truffle (Tuber melanosporum) and the white truffle (Tuber magnatum) are the most well-known varieties.
