Trees inoculated with French black truffles (Tuber melanosporum):
Corylus avellana: the common European hazelnut
The first and most widely planted tree species inoculated with French black truffles. Hazelnuts are small, easy to grow trees known for producing truffles in as little as three years after planting and generally, to produce truffles several years earlier than oaks or other, longer lived hosts. They also produce excellent edible nuts that can be harvested along with the truffles from the same trees (see faq’s page).
Quercus ilex: holly oak
Among the best hosts for truffles, particularly in warmer and dryer climates. Holly oaks are beautiful evergreen live oaks common in Mediterranean Europe, and widely used to cultivate truffles in Spain.
Quercus robur: English oak
An excellent host for truffles, both in natural forests and in plantations. English oaks grow into large, deciduous trees used widely and successfully throughout the world as hosts for black and Burgundy truffles.
Please contact us for other tree species, trees inoculated with Italian white truffles (Tuber magnatum) or Oregon white truffles (Tuber gibbosum). We can also obtain fresh or frozen truffles. Please contact us for availability.
