A fast growing plant, normally grown as a single trunk tree. It grows best in sheltered areas with fertile soil and consistent moisture levels. Tolerant of cold temperatures. All varieties require cross-pollination in order to produce nuts. Our seedlings stem from a mixed orchard with the varieties Alexandra, MDB & Whiteheart.
The Bianchetto or ‘Little White’ truffle is also known as the ‘pine forest truffle’ or the ‘truffle of March’ and is grown for its excellent flavour and aroma. The Bianchetto truffle is very variable. Its diameter can be up to 5 cm or more, it has a smooth skin and a pale-yellow to reddish-brown appearance. The Bianchetto truffle prefers sandy limestone soils, and associates with a variety of host trees, including oaks, hazels, conifers and others. Harvest is typically from winter to spring.
