Broadly-spreading, dense tree. Hard timber producer. Clip into a hedge or topiary. Tolerates head, drought, exposure, clay soils, shade and salt spray. Evergreen. Hardy. Inoculated with the Perigord Black Truffle (Tuber melanosporum).
The Périgord truffle is one of the most commercially valuable truffles in the world because of its powerful, sweet aroma. The dark brown, warty-skinned fruiting bodies can reach up to the size of a grapefruit. Truffles become ready for harvest in mid winter, and grow best in high alkaline limestone soil with either an Oak or Hazelnut host tree.
