Truffle-growing abilities of the sessile oak
Typical tree of European forests, the sessile oak (Quercus sessiliflora) proliferates in temperate regions. More resistant to drought than the pedunculate oak and not very sensitive to parasitic attacks and diseases, the sessile oak does not require intense light (it is a species of half-shade). This oak is very hardy as it can withstand very cold temperatures down to -25°C. It can be found up to 1600 meters of altitude. It grows in sandy, silty, clayey, more or less stony soils but it particularly appreciates filtering, thick, slightly acidic soils. Uncommon in the southern regions of France, the sessile oak can be used to produce Tuber uncinatum.
About the Burgundy truffle (Tuber Uncinatum)
This 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.
