Peridium: smooth, light yellow in colour, sometimes with light green or yellow-ochre tones.
Gleba: pale yellow with hazelnut or brown tones, sometimes with red freckles, crossed by a close-knit network of very fine white veins. Shape: may be rounded or even very lobed, or decidedly squashed, depending on the type of ground where the truffle grows. Size: this species is very varied in size, with examples that can even reach sizes of several hundred grams and even exceeding a kilo in weight. Ripening period: from September to December.
How to recognise it: for its smooth peridium, the smooth colours, the unmistakeable aroma, the autumnal ripening period.
