White Oregon truffles (Tuber Oregonense & Tuber Gibbosum) are technically two different species that mature at different times of the year. However, they are similar enough that they are sold as the same product. They have a magnificent first impression with their intense aroma. Their flavor is deliciously earthy with notes of garlic and nutmeg.
Oregon truffles do not have the same quality, depth or complexity of flavor that their European counterparts do. They are however a far more economical alternative and a good choice for those seeking to try fresh truffles for the first time.
