Truffle production capacity of the Byzantine hazelnut tree
The Byzantine hazelnut tree (Corylus Colurna) is a natural producer of truffles. Hardy and vigorous, it adapts to all soils, but prefers dry ones. Although not very demanding, it is best to avoid planting it on land that is too deep and rich, which would encourage it to develop too quickly. It does not mind hot summers, nor cold winters and frost (down to -30°C). If in its natural state, it can be found in the mountains, in truffle growing, it should not be planted above 1400 meters of altitude and should be given a good exposure (full sun). Precocious, the Byzantine hazelnut tree can give its first Burgundy truffles from the 4th or 5th year.
Compared to the common hazelnut tree, the Byzantine hazelnut tree has an advantage, but also a disadvantage:
- it is monocultured (it grows around a single trunk), which greatly reduces pruning work,
- on the other hand, its very hard-shelled nuts are of mediocre quality.
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.
