Common Hornbeam Truffle Aptitudes

The common hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) is listed among the many forest host species that can live in symbiosis with the Burgundy truffle. Sometimes called hornbeam, it is a fairly common tree in the forests of Central Europe. This tree has all the qualities required for truffle cultivation: it grows relatively quickly, can withstand repeated and severe pruning, and is adapted to the different types of soil in Western Europe. Although it is very resistant to frosts and heat, it does not grow very high in the mountains (1000 m altitude maximum). Not very exigent on the nature of the soil, it prefers nevertheless the silty and fresh soils benefiting from a sunny or semi-shaded exposure.

About the Burgundy truffle (Tuber Uncinatum)

Growing burgundy truffles from a common hornbeam plantThis is likely the most common edible truffle variety in Europe. This autumn truffle is distinguished by its black exterior (peridium). Inside, the flesh is dark brown. And it is distinguished by its very present white veins. The Burgundy truffle is an edible mushroom prized for its delicate flavors. As its vernacular name suggests, the Burgundy truffle was historically found mainly in east-central France. While it has since spread very widely well beyond this region, in France, Burgundy, Champagne, and Lorraine and Alsace remain the regions favored by Tuber uncinatum.
