Truffles Blog Luxury Natural Bio Organic food
Some blogs that talk about truffles because everyone likes to eat them. Their geographical origin is located in China and more particularly in the foothills of the Himalayas, south of Sichuan and north of Yunnan. The Chinese truffle has an appearance of skin and shape very little different from T. The truffle is the fruit of a fungus which grows under very specific conditions. It therefore particularly needs limestone soils and the presence of so-called truffle trees such as oak or hornbeam. It is therefore found mainly in Provence, Périgord and Burgundy. You just have to go to the forest and the woods to find truffles. This fungus is generally found under oak, but also under hazel and lime. Austrian black pine, Scots pine, black hornbeam, beech or even atlas cedar can also hide these rare fungi. The black truffle, Tuber Melanosporum at a price that varies between 500 to 1000 euros per kg. The most expensive Alba white truffle is sold between 5,000 to 7,000 euros per kg. Truffles are expensive because they are rare, difficult to find, difficult to grow - you have to inject spores into the soil and wait five or six years - and highly perishable. It grows in the earth, in truffle forests with limestone soils. The rarest and most sought after, the white truffle from Italy or otherwise known as the Alba truffle is the one considered to be the most upscale. It is only found in Piedmont in Italy, a region bordering with France and Switzerland. The truffle needs a temperate climate with not too dry springs without late frost, hot summers with dry periods limited to 3 weeks, a mild autumn without early frost, and winters without intense cold. The climate in the south of France is in principle favorable.
