Truffle production capacity of the Tonda Gentile hazelnut

The Tonga Gentile hazelnut (Corylus Avellana Tonda Gentile) is a very productive tree whose roots live in symbiosis with the truffle. This bushy shrub adapts very well to different latitudes and climates, so much so that it is cultivated all over Europe (especially in Spain, Italy, Portugal, Greece, and France). A moderately vigorous hazelnut tree, it flourishes planted in well-drained soil, in rows oriented North-South to benefit from maximum sunlight. Easy to maintain, and not very demanding on the nature of the soil, it is very resistant to cold and can withstand temperatures as low as -25°C. The hazelnuts it produces are well rounded, of medium to large size and have a tasty and sweet flesh. This fruiting hazelnut tree will delight you with its abundant combined production of delicious hazelnuts and delicate Burgundy truffles.

About the Burgundy truffle (Tuber uncinatum)

Growing burgundy truffles from a Tonda gentile hazel plantThis is likely the most common edible truffle variety in Europe. This autumn truffle is distinguished by its black exterior (peridium). Inside, the flesh is dark brown. And it is distinguished by its very present white veins. The Burgundy truffle is an edible mushroom prized for its delicate flavors. As its vernacular name suggests, the Burgundy truffle was historically found mainly in east-central France. While it has since spread very widely well beyond this region, in France, Burgundy, Champagne, and Lorraine and Alsace remain the regions favored by Tuber uncinatum.
