Truffle-growing ability of pubescent oak
Present in Southern Europe and the Middle East, the pubescent oak (Quercus pubescent) is also called "white oak". It owes its name to the fuzz that covers the underside of its leaves. This variety of oak grows especially in rich, drained soils and it supports very well the presence of limestone, which makes it an interesting species from a truffle point of view. A heliophilous tree (which likes light and sun), with a very long life span and very slow growth, the Pubescent Oak grows naturally in slightly humid, clayey, limestone-rich soils. It tolerates drought relatively well and can withstand frost down to -20°C, so that it can be found at altitudes of up to 1400 m. Because of its characteristics and its biotope, the pubescent oak favors the development of truffles by its side, it is moreover the truffle oak that is regularly found in the Perigord or in the Vaucluse.
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.
