We just published a new paper on Tuber borchii growing with stone pine

bianchetto truffle farming

The last edition of the Montes review (just in spanish edition, sorry for that) has published our latest paper titled: “Viabilidad y rentabilidad de una plantación de pino piñonero (Pinus pinea) micorrizado con trufa bianchetto (Tuber borchii), por M. Morcillo, E. de Paz, X. Vilanova y M. Sánchez”

This is “feasibility and profitability of a stone pine plantation (Pinus pinea) mycorrhized with bianchetto truffle (Tuber borchii)”.

We keep on working with this truffle trying to get a better understanding on its biology, life cycle and fruiting triggering factors. As an example studying the diversity of bianchetto in Spain and Portugal. The ones on the pic above harvested in north Barcelona, DNA confirmed as Tuber borchii.
