Common hazelnut's truffle-growing abilities
Hardy (up to -25°C) and very vigorous, the common hazelnut (Corylus avellana) is an excellent truffle plant as long as it is planted in a very calcareous soil (pH higher than 7.5) and well drained to avoid excess humidity. It can grow in almost all climates, but is particularly suited to dry regions where rain is rare, except in the Mediterranean basin. A fast-growing perennial shrub, the common hazelnut tree can easily establish itself up to the mountains (1700 m) on well exposed slopes (sun to half-shade). Its only requirement is its liveliness, which requires regular pruning (every 2 to 3 years) to ensure good light between the branches. Finally, let us note that the hazelnut tree has the advantage of producing a double harvest. It is indeed the only fruit and truffle plant since it produces truffles in addition to its nuts.
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.
