What do truffles look like in the wild? Here’s the answer. 1) Sometimes you see a partially eaten truffle in a small depression, where an animal has eaten part of the sporocarp, but left the rest for a later meal. 2) Sometimes the sporocarps is visible on top of the ground (epigeous) but mostly buried. This one has already had some insects eating on it. (Notice the two small holes.) 3) Finally, a truffle can be partially buried, and partially above ground, but not yet eaten on. This is an indication of an immature truffle. Notice the differences in color gradation. In determining which truffles are most mature, color is one of the best indications: the darker the interior (gleba), the more mature the truffle is likely to be.
