Atlas Cedar Truffle Aptitudes
The Atlas cedar (Cedrus atlantica) is a remarkable forest species for its ability to produce truffles. Its evergreen foliage generates shade and humidity, so it is naturally predisposed to the cultivation of the Burgundy truffle, but it is also able to generate beautiful black truffles when its plants are spaced far enough apart to favor the sunshine of the soil. If it prefers clay-limestone soils, nutrient poor to moderately rich, it can adapt to irregular water conditions. It also tolerates snow and cold up to -25°C.
About the Burgundy truffle (Tuber Uncinatum)
This 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.
