Barssia oregonensis is a mycorrhizal truffle associated with Douglas fir. Other than Tuber lyonii (previously T. texense and T. rufum var. nitidum) it is the only true truffle with an apical pore. Sporocarps are typically less than 2 inches in diameter, with a mild flavor and texture and slightly metallic aftertaste. It is edible.
