If you are a serious truffle connoisseur, and already hunt for white truffles or black truffles on your own, then it’s time to invest in your own truffle pleasure, and start a truffle farm. Truffle Farms are orchards, and make for a nice landscape as a latent function of their truffle bearing.
The two main types of trees that are used in truffle cultivation are: Oak and Hazelnut Trees. These trees are not the only types of tree to bear truffles, but tend to be the most successful in doing so, both in quantity and quality. In order for them to bear truffles, the trees need to be inoculated.
Inoculation is a process that we are only now considering to be scientific. Companies that specialize in this very process are very good at what they do, and sell inoculated trees in different variety and bulk. My recommendation is to try both Oak and Hazelnut. You may even want to consider buy from multiple suppliers.
Once you have your trees, you will want to plot where you would like the trees planted. Depending on how large your stake of land is, and how many trees you will be planting, you can determine placing. While there is not industry standard as to how far the trees should be away from each other, do yourself a favor and plant the trees in straight rows, to add to the atheistic beauty of your creation.
Ideally, you will want to plant the trees a few weeks after the first thaw in spring, or early autumn, whichever is more convenient in your circumstances. Caring for trees, is pretty straight forward, but if you need help there are many tutorials to walk you through the process of tree care, just don’t get caught hugging one.
I will say that soil acidity is considered normal at 7.3 to 7.9. If you sample your soil, and find it to be outside this range, you might want to consult your local nursery. And, prune your trees. Experts in the fields claim that by pruning your trees, you can expect a larger yield. After a few years, you can expect to see truffles.
