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.
