This was part of the truffle display by the North American Truffling Society at the 2001 Oregon Mycological Society’s Fall Mushroom Show, World Forestry Center, Portland, Multnomah County, OR. Trucocolumella citrina I call the Licorice truffle. As it matures, it appears to digest itself, like Coprinus mushrooms. The specimen on the far right has a large interior glob of goo. Touch the goo and taste. (Gross? No. Sweet, licorice? YES!) A columella is a stem-like structure incorporated into the gleba of this basidiomycete truffle. If you like the taste of licorice, try incorporating this truffle into a fondue for a taste treat!
