Where do white truffles grow?
As is the case with many of the world's top ingredients and spices, obtaining white truffles comes with a good share of difficulties. All truffles are tubers. They grow underground—typically several inches underground. They find their homes alongside roots of trees such as oak, chestnut, and hazelnut, where they take part in a symbiotic relationship, exchanging nutrients and water for needed carbohydrates.

The outer skin of a white truffle is actually more tan in color than the name suggests. When sliced open, you'll find the segments to be light brown with noticeable white veins running throughout.
