Truffle-growing properties of the Coutard Fertile hazelnut

The Coutard Fertile fruiting hazelnut (Corylus avellana fertile coutard) is a variety of French origin, living in perfect symbiosis with the truffle. As a vigorous and very productive hazelnut tree, it adapts to all types of soil, even limestone (hence its capacity as a truffle host). It likes fresh, humus-rich and well-drained soils. It resists to the cold until -15°C. It produces large round hazelnuts with firm and very fragrant flesh. Its excellent hazelnuts are harvested from mid-August. This hazelnut tree will delight you with its abundant production of delicious hazelnuts and delicate black truffles.

About the black truffle (Tuber melanosporum)

Growing black truffles from a Ferticle coulard hazel 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 (reduced to 4 or 5 years in the case of production from hazelnut plants).
