Atlas cedar truffle aptitude

The Atlas cedar (Cedrus atlantica) is a remarkable forest species for its ability to produce truffles. Its evergreen foliage generates shade and humidity, so it is naturally predisposed to the cultivation of the Burgundy truffle, but it is also able to generate beautiful black truffles when its plants are spaced far enough apart to favor the sunshine of the soil. If it prefers clay-limestone soils, nutrient poor to moderately rich, it can adapt to irregular water conditions. It also tolerates snow and cold up to -25°C.

About the Black truffle (Tuber melanosporum)

Growing black truffles from an Atlas Cedar plantA true "black diamond", Tuber melanosporum is as rare as it is sought after. It can be recognized by its rounded shape, sometimes bumpy, and its black flesh marbled with white. This truffle gives off an intense perfume and reveals fine aromas that make it an exceptional mushroom. Emblematic of French gastronomy, the black truffle can be eaten cooked or raw, as a seasoning or as an accompaniment to a dish. Black truffles are harvested from November to early March. Depending on the age of the plant and the land chosen, you will have to wait between 6 and 8 years to harvest your first black truffles.
