Truffle Tree: Oak with Summer Truffle Spores - Botanica

Product details

Truffle Trees are used widely to cultivate this sought after delicacy which is a type of fungi which grow in symbiosis close to the roots of hazel and oak trees. They are the most expensive fungus you can buy, highly valued chefs and connoisseurs for their superb flavour. Summer Truffles (Tuber aestivum var. uncinatum) are a native UK species and ideal for growing in the British climate. This young Oak sapling has been pre-inoculated with the Summer Truffle and could be producing valuable truffles in five to ten years. 

Hazel grow quicker than Oak and make a small tree suitable for smaller gardens. The Oak will grow slower than Hazel, especially when young, but makes a large tree which needs a good sized space. If you are willing to wait you should get more truffles from a large Oak tree than a small Hazel tree

Truffle Trees make ideal gifts when you are looking for something 'out of the ordinary'. They come with full growing instructions and a certificate confirming that the little tree comes complete with truffle spores

UK grown by a leading Truffle Tree producer, who is one of our specialist partner suppliers. The sapling is root wrapped in a plastic bag, ready to plant. Delivered within 5 working days
