Quercus ilex x Tuber melanosporum
Broadly-spreading, dense tree. Tolerates heat, 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.
We strongly recommend proper site preparation and prior-research before planting our truffle inoculated trees, click here for more information.
