First orchard of stone pine mycorrhized with Tuber borchii in México

pinus cembroides México micorrizado con Tuber borchii

Last october we out planted the first 800 pines mycorrhized with bianchetto we inoculated 2 years ago in México. The pines produced are stone pines (Pinus pinea) and Pinus cembroides, a local pine that produces edible nuts as well. They were planted in Zumpango, quite close to Ciudad de México in a natural sandy limy soil.

México has a wide native truffles diversity and other attempts are currently done by the researcher Gonzalo Guevara in Victoria area, with Tuber regiomontanum and Tuber melanosporum with Quercus polymorpha as a host oak.

Another group just published the first case of obtaining Morchella fruit bodies in Mexico by inoculation in situ, a promising technique close to our Mycoforest technology we are currently working with other species.
