Tuber Magnatum Pico White Truffle

It is considered the truffle par excellence.
It is an underground fungus living in symbiosis with the roots of many trees, like cornels, maples, oaks, willows, lime trees, and poplars.
Very rich in water and mineral salts, it can have different sizes: from the size of a walnut to the size of an orange in very rare and lucky cases.

Maturation: from October to December.
Shape: round with not wrinkled and white-grayish skin.
Interior: very light brown tending to white with white streaks. The color variations depend on the maturation degree and on the tree the truffles grow in symbiosis with.
Smell: intense and fragrant.
Taste: delicate and soft.

There are specialized centers dealing with the preservation, transformation, and sale of truffles.
