Burgundy Black Truffle Cultivation in an Agroforestry Practice
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The two best candidate species for truffle cultivation in the south-central U.S. are the Burgundy truffle (Tuber aestivum Vitt., syn. T. uncinatum Ch.) and the Perigord black truffle (T. melanosporum Vitt.). These common names (Burgundy truffle and Perigord black truffle) are derived from the names of two of the many regions in France where they are famous. Though native to Europe, there is great interest in expanding the cultivated range of both of these species.
