I saw these on a jog in my neighborhood and 5 of them were others growing around 2 side-by-side oaks. They are extremely dense and hard to the kick and wouldn’t dislodge with nudging. I realize that white truffles only grow in Pecan Orchards, in Georgia. They sure do look like truffles — might they be false truffles or is this a rare occurrence of white truffles? They are above ground – which makes it suspicious to me that they are an odd fungus.
