Truffle-growing potential of the Turkey oak

Sometimes also called Burgundy oak or hairy oak, the Turkey oak (Quercus cerris) is a species suitable for truffle farming. It is a fast-growing species and can be found in many countries of Central and Southern Europe. It is indeed adapted to many climates, even maritime ones, but rarely grows above 1400 m of altitude. It is however rustic and supports the cold until -25° C. It consents all types of soil, even poor provided that it is rich in limestone. It has a good tolerance to drought and is easy to maintain. Like all oaks, it likes the sun, but can also adapt well to a semi-shaded exposure. Excellent host of tuber uncinatum and aestivum, it can also produce beautiful black truffles as long as it benefits from sufficient sunlight/heating.

About the Black truffle (Tuber melanosporum)

Growing black truffles from a hairy oak 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.
