When cut in half, Whitish Truffles should demonstrate a clear white marbling with large white veins on a dark cream or fawn coloured background.

Aroma and Taste

Whitish Truffles have a medium to strong aroma, very reminiscent of garlic.

Keeping

Whitish Truffles have a reasonable shelf life of up to around 2 weeks. They will lose a small proprotion of their body weight every day.
