Observation 9595: Tuber magnatum Picco

When: 2002-10-28

Seen at: Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

This most expensive of any truffles, is not a good truffle in my experience. I purchased 2 kg. from Italy, had them shipped to me, and many/most were immature when received. Yes, they had lots of aroma. But they did not last long and they seemed to have a parasitic fungus attacking them.
