White Truffle or Trifola
The white truffle is the rarest and most prized of the varieties. The scientific name is Tuber Magnatum Pico: magnatum, because it was destined for consumption by magnates, the great tycoons of the table, and Pico from the name of the Turin physician who first described its characteristics in 1788. Of all the types of truffles, this one can grow to the largest size. It is egg-shaped, yellow-white on the outside with a hazelnut beige on the inside, depending on how ripe it is.
