White Bianchetto truffle tree - UK only - on hazelnut
*see 3 attached pics of 2 bianchetto truffles i found in my garden in Harrow from a 6 year old tree* Paolo.Tuber Borchii Vittad - Commonly known as Bianchetto or Marzuolo truffles. One of the easiest truffles to grow and found in small quantities all over Europe. Small harvests possible out of season, but it's main harvest period is Jan-Apr. Intense perfume and flavour cannot be reproduced. White truffles will grow in soil with a PH of 6.5-8.0. Compare the price of a truffle tree to a bay tree and then think of the price of just one truffle. Plus you get to eat the nuts and don't need a pig to find them!! Bianchetto truffles are fabulous in Italian Frittata's, mixed with mascarpone and spread onto bruschetta, and in pasta, risotto, polenta and to make truffle cream sauces. UK ONLY (NOT USA).
