agirlsgirl(6 SW-PA)August 1, 2007

Hi! Anyone out there know anything about Wild Truffles in Pennsylvania? Do we have them here? Are they common in this area?If any, what types would typicaly be found? I believe possibly,the dogs of a dear friend of mine,have discovered a patch on her property! They return to the dark moist area under a tree quite frequently,any chance they get!!! Any information is welcomed and much appreciated!Good wishes to all!

Dogs don't like to eat truffles, though they can be trained to find them. If your friend's dogs haven't been truffle trained, there is likely something else attracting them to the tree. Maybe a dead animal is buried under the tree or an animal is roosting in the tree and dropping urine or scat under the tree.

Truffles species do grow in North America, mostly on the west coast, but their ediblility has not been established. See the link below for info
