The Truffle-Ground

'La Maison des Truffes et de la Trufficulture' is linked to the experimental truffle-ground in Boncourt sur Meuse.

In 1989, the 7 hectares which make up the truffle-ground were planted with nut-trees carrying mycorhiza.

The ground looks like any orchard full of nut-trees. However, the difference is that these trees are not grown to produce fruit, but to bear truffles on their roots.

 

Many experiments are carried out here, on plantation density, tree-size, water-supply etc...
