The black truffle (Tuber melanosporum) is the third most expensive food in the world. Prized for its rarity and beguiling aroma, more than 70 per cent of premium black truffles produced in Australia come from the Southern Forests. As the largest producer in the Southern Hemisphere, the region has secured the place of Australian truffle on the global culinary map.
“The Manjimup area is known as a pristine horticultural area with a long history of producing high quality fresh food – and Manjimup truffles do not disappoint in this regard.” Peter Gilmore
Manjimup truffles go by several different names from the latin tuber melanosporum, to French Perigord truffle, to simplly black truffle. They are the same variety that are found in parts of Italy and France.
