Aleppo pine Truffle Aptitudes
The Aleppo pine (Pinus Halepensis), also commonly known as "White Pine" or "Pine of Provence", is very present in the French Mediterranean basin (and more widely in the whole western Mediterranean basin, in Europe, North Africa and the Near East). It is a tree species compatible with truffle growing. Particularly adapted to rocky, arid and calcareous soils, the Aleppo pine is moderately hardy: it does not tolerate temperatures below -10 °C, which explains why it is rarely found above 700 m altitude. It is therefore more at home in warm regions, especially since it is very resistant to drought. It accepts all dry, well-drained soils and appreciates clay-limestone soils. These various characteristics make it a host species for the black truffle.
About the Black truffle (Tuber melanosporum)
A 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.
