Description: The Wild-berry Taste Truffle is found under trees, especially in the neighbourhood of beeches, and resembles, externally, a brownish irregular tuber; internally it is divided into cells by whitish walls, containing at first a black pulp, and ultimately a number of minute dark spores. The surface of this truffle is smooth and not covered with warts or tubercles as in other truffles. The taste and aroma of this species is a mixture of well known wild berries, therefore is mainly used as appetizer, or in deserts, such as ice cream.

Other names: Red truffle
