It is the best truffle to be used with game (hare, pheasant, woodcock, wild boar) due to its variability in flavour, good and pleasant to the palate, but not always delicate and mild. It does not reach large dimensions sometimes like a walnut other times like an orange. It has an irregular tuber shape, gibbous, lobated, lacking a protuberant base. Flesh and pulp at the beginning is of an ochre and light colour, upon ripening they take on a reddish brown or purplish brown colour.
