The black truffle, the same as the Périgord truffle is recognizable by its strong wild perfume. Its development requires 3 essential elements : earth rich in limestone, a Mediterranean climate and a welcoming tree (generally oak). It is collected during winter at the feet of oak trees with the help of a well-trained dog. The "truffle hound" scratches the earth to show where the truffle is hidden, leaving its owner to free the "Black Diamond" with a special hook called a "Faiji". The cultivation of truffles spreads over 15 communities in the "Vaucluse" and 68 in the "Drôme Provençale".
