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.
