Truffle features of the 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 summer truffle (Tuber aestivum)

Growing summer truffles from a pubescent oak plantWith its fine, subtle aromas, this variety of truffle knows how to conquer the palate of foodies. Called the summer truffle or St. John's truffle, Tuber aestivum grows naturally in many regions, starting with the south of France. It is also widespread in other countries such as Italy, Germany and Greece. Externally, the summer truffle looks like the black truffle. Its peridium is indeed black or brownish. On the inside, however, it offers shades of beige or brown with more or less yellow veins. The summer truffle is best eaten raw and sliced. Indeed, cooking tends to attenuate its fragrance.
