Frequent contact topics (to save you some time):

I think I have found truffles

  • Please look carefully at the photos on this web site, does what you have found look like them? Is the skin black in colour with pronounced, irregular "warts".
  • Was it underground (or breaking the ground surface)?
  • If it is white and growing above the ground, it is not a truffle - it is probably an Earthball - do not eat!

An Earthball - NOT a truffle.


  • If it is black and growing on an Ash, Beech or other tree (above the ground), it is not a truffle - it is probably a Cramp Ball or King Alfred's Cake - do not eat!
