according to David A. were all associated with a single Canyon Live oak. Most Tuber collections from California seem to be oak associations. But further north in Oregon, Douglas-fir is the typical host. That said, there are always exceptions. One of the tiny Tubers here in Oregon is associated only with honeysuckle!

These were mid-aged trees, that most people would consider young trees: about 25 years old, planted 1985.

I found others that day, but was kept busy identifying what other people had found. Spent more time identifying others finds than looking for my own.

Based on my finger in the picture, I’d say these were small: probably near 1/2 inch diameter. No odor. Immature Tuber have very solid textures, slicing them is similar to slicing a nut meat.

What kind of xmas tree was it growing under, and what was the age of the trees?
Was that the only one or did you find more?
What was the average size?
Did it have a smell?
What was the texture?
