Potential and interests of pedunculate oak in truffle growing
The pedunculate oak (Quercus pedonculata) is very present in the plains of all France (except the Mediterranean), Switzerland and Belgium. It thrives in fairly moderate and humid continental climates. Not very demanding, it prefers fresh and deep soils that remain humid all year long. However, the pedunculate oak needs warm summers. It tolerates drought as long as it is not excessively prolonged. Moreover, if it is moderately sensitive to winter cold, it fears late spring frosts, which explains why it is rarely found above 1300 m altitude. It is a heliophile species, which seeks full light. Its growth is slow in its youngest age then becomes more sustained. Depending on the biotope in which it is planted and the exposure from which it benefits, the pedunculate oak is able to favor the development of Tuber uncinatum, Tuber melanosporum and even Tuber magnatum.
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.
