In the past in the Arabian Peninsula, people would go out into the desert at the end of each rainy season and return with an abundant harvest of white truffles, the most prized type, called faqaa or kamaa. We can distinguish three different types: zubaidi, considered one of the most delicious and prized; ghlassi which tends to be yellow, has a good flavor and is more common than the first type; jabba which often tends to be black and is the least common. White truffles grow hidden underground and have a spherical shape and smooth texture. Its color varies between white and brownish. The size varies and ranges from hazelnut to orange; sometimes there can be larger truffles if the rain gets heavier. Truffles usually grow after the monsoon rains from January to April; they are harvested between April and June and disappear at the first frost. The monsoon rain is essential for good truffle growth. The truffles must then be harvested at the right time: if they are picked earlier they are too immature, later they decompose in the soil. Truffles can be found by locating, with an expert eye, small cracks in the soil in conjunction with tuff or specific desert plants or grasses. Some truffle hunters are beginning to use dogs that recognize their scent thanks to their sense of smell. They are mainly found in the northern area of Saudi Arabia, particularly in the north-east and close to the Iraqi border. They are also found in As Sadawi, Al Jadidah, Hafr Al and Al Shoaba.
