Tuscany, especially the countryside enclosed within the  medieval villages of San Miniato and Palaia, represents  the beating heart of truffle hunting.  Here, takes place the research and the collection of three  prized species of truffle: the Bianchetto trufle (Tuber  borchii) that grows and  ripes from January to April;  from May to September, we  can find the Scorzone truffle  (Tuber aestivum); and  lastly, from September to  January, truffle hunters set  out in search of the White  truffle (Tuber magnatum).  The  special  climatic  conditions, the particular  type ofsoil, and the  preservation of the natural  environment, make San Miniato and his surroundings  one of the main collection sites in the world for the  quantity but, above all, for the quality of trufle  It is not by chance that in 1951, in the hills adjacent to  the small village of Balconevisi, between San Miniato  and Palaia, were found the biggest trufle in the world  weighing in at 2,520 kg.
