The two main types of Asian truffles are the Chinese Black Truffle and the Mid-Eastern Terfez.
The merit of these truffles is highly disputed; some have called them comparable to black summer truffles, others find it completely different to any European truffle. They look like your average truffle on the outside, knotty and knobby, a dirty black-brown color, smaller than European truffles, about the size of a walnut. On the inside, they are jet black, with white spidery veins and a more elastic consistency.
They are harvested mainly from October to February.
