Truffle growing abilities of the beech

Due to its characteristics, the common beech (Fagus sylvatica) is one of the many forest species that can live in symbiosis with the Burgundy truffle. This deciduous tree has a root system covering a vast area, which allows it to cope with drought or poor soil. It likes temperate climates, both in the plains and in medium mountains (up to 1500 m). If it appreciates particularly the acid and well drained soils, it manages to develop on thin calcareous grounds. Its dense foliage provides shade and humidity, two elements favorable to the cultivation of Tuber uncinatum.

About the Burgundy truffle (Tuber Uncinatum)

Growing burgundy truffles from a beech 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.
