Truffle growing ability of pedunculate oak
The pedunculate oak (Quercus pedonculata) is very present in the plains of all France (except the Mediterranean), Switzerland and Belgium. It thrives in fairly moderate and humid continental climates. Not very demanding, it prefers fresh and deep soils that remain humid all year long. However, the pedunculate oak needs warm summers. It tolerates drought as long as it is not excessively prolonged. Moreover, if it is moderately sensitive to winter cold, it fears late spring frosts, which explains why it is rarely found above 1300 m altitude. It is a heliophile species, which seeks full light. Its growth is slow in its youngest age then becomes more sustained. It should be noted that the pedunculate oak is one of the few forest species that can live in symbiosis with the white truffle.
About the white truffle (Tuber magnatum)
Tuber Magnatum, is the rarest, but also the most famous (and therefore the most expensive) truffle. It is called white truffle of Alba ("tartufo bianco di Alba" in Italian), from the name of a town in Piedmont that has based its reputation on this famous mushroom. The white truffle can be recognized by its white and smooth peridium. Inside, the flesh of the mushroom is white and marbled. The white truffle is known for its delicacy and its intense and incomparable perfumes. This species of truffle is mainly eaten raw.
