Common Oak - Bianchetto Truffle

The classic oak tree of NZ parks and large gardens.  Tolerant of a wide range of sites, including heavy clays and strong wind exposure.  Deciduous.  Hardy.

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.
