Product Description

The white spring truffle, also know as Tuber borchii, or bianchetto has an amazing garlicky aroma, and strongly resembles the more expensive Italian white truffle (Tuber magnatum). This species is harvested across Europe during late winter and early spring.

At maturity the spring truffle turns light brown and can often have irregular dark brown patches, the flesh inside is a redish brown with large white veins.

Sizes can vary from the very small (the size of a pea) to the size of a tennis ball if the soil is well aerated.
