Quercus leucotrichophora x Tuber melanopsporum

Himalayan Oak - Périgord Truffle

A medium-sized evergreen oak tree of from inland Asia. This rare and unusual tree has stiff leathery foliage with silver-green undersides and edible acorns. Requires moist, free-draining soils. Wind tolerant. Evergreen. Frost tender.

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.
