East Hornbeam Truffle Aptitudes

Initially known for its ornamental qualities, the East Hornbeam (Ostrya carpinifolia) is on the short list of host species that can live in symbiosis with the Burgundy truffle. Although native to southern Europe and the Near East, the east hornbeam is resistant to frost, to temperatures between -15 and -20 °C for short periods of time and in fairly dry soil. A neutral or chalky soil is well tolerated by this tree which likes clayey or sandy soil. It is able to grow in stony soil, but will remain in this case much lower and will take more the aspect of a big shrub.

About the Burgundy truffle (Tuber Uncinatum)

Growing burgundy truffles from a east 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.
