Common hazelnut's truffle-growing abilities

Hardy (up to -25°C) and very vigorous, the common hazelnut (Corylus avellana) is an excellent truffle plant as long as it is planted in a very calcareous soil (pH higher than 7.5) and well drained to avoid excess humidity. It can grow in almost all climates, but is particularly suited to dry regions where rain is rare, except in the Mediterranean basin. A fast-growing perennial shrub, the common hazelnut tree can easily establish itself up to the mountains (1700 m) on well exposed slopes (sun to half-shade). Its only requirement is its liveliness, which requires regular pruning (every 2 to 3 years) to ensure good light between the branches. Finally, let us note that the hazelnut tree has the advantage of producing a double harvest. It is indeed the only fruit and truffle plant since it produces truffles in addition to its nuts.

About the summer truffle (Tuber aestivum)

Growing summer truffles from a common hazel plantWith its fine, subtle aromas, this variety of truffle knows how to conquer the palate of foodies. Called the summer truffle or St. John's truffle, Tuber aestivum grows naturally in many regions, starting with the south of France. It is also widespread in other countries such as Italy, Germany and Greece. Externally, the summer truffle looks like the black truffle. Its peridium is indeed black or brownish. On the inside, however, it offers shades of beige or brown with more or less yellow veins. The summer truffle is best eaten raw and sliced. Indeed, cooking tends to attenuate its fragrance.
