Truffle properties of the pubescent oak
Present in Southern Europe and the Middle East, the pubescent oak (Quercus pubescent) is also called "white oak". It owes its name to the fuzz that covers the underside of its leaves. This variety of oak grows especially in rich, drained soils and it supports very well the presence of limestone, which makes it an interesting species from a truffle point of view. A heliophilous tree (which likes light and sun), with a very long life span and very slow growth, the Pubescent Oak grows naturally in slightly humid, clayey, limestone-rich soils. It tolerates drought relatively well and can withstand frost down to -20°C, so that it can be found at altitudes of up to 1400 m. Because of its characteristics and its biotope, the pubescent oak favors the development of truffles by its side. It is one of the rare species that can live in symbiosis with the Italian white truffle.
About the white truffle (Tuber magnatum)
Tuber Magnatum, is the rarest, but also the most famous (and therefore the most expensive) truffle. It is called white truffle of Alba ("tartufo bianco di Alba" in Italian), from the name of a town in Piedmont that has based its reputation on this famous mushroom. The white truffle can be recognized by its white and smooth peridium. Inside, the flesh of the mushroom is white and marbled. The white truffle is known for its delicacy and its intense and incomparable perfumes. This species of truffle is mainly eaten raw.
