Where do truffles grow?

 

France is a great Truffle-producing country.

It is above all chalky, limestone soil that lends itself the best to the production of truffles. Then, the texture of the soil is essential, according to its capacity for water-retention, ground aeration etc. All these parameters largely determine whether or not truffles can be produced.

The ground's orientation and slope are also important factors to be taken into account when planting mycorhized trees. arbre mycorhizés.Carte potentialité des truffes
