Rare truffle find

During our 2015 Napa Truffle Festival, we ran a very successful fungi foray with mycologists David Campbell and Stephanie Jarvis.

After recent rains the finds were incredibly varied with prized edibles including matsutake and elfin saddle-backs.

The real star of the foray though, was a surprise find of a rare truffle species by Lolo and her expert handler Alana McGee.

Around the base of a young Douglas fir a fruity-smelling truffle was unearthed.

After analysis here at MSL, the truffle appears to be Balsamia magnata, a native to the US but still a rare (and edible) find!
