  • Russian commercial variety.
  • The original name is Yaponskiy Trufel Chernyi, but unfortunately the seed came to North America with the translated name, Japanese Trifele Black, and it was offered by many commercial seed vendors with the translated name.
  • Tatiana's note: We do not support names translation, as it leads to confusion and the same variety being offered under different names. Please always use the original variety name to avoid confusion and preserve variety's roots and history. All the translated names are considered to be 'marketing' names, and not actual variety names..

Russian name: Японский трюфель черный

The name means 'Japanese Trifele Black' in Russian.
