WHAT IS A TRUFFLE?

Plantations
Truffles are the fruit body of a subterranean fungus that forms a symbiotic relationship with the roots of certain trees and shrubs (truffle host plants) such as the oak (Quercus fagaceas), hazel (Quercus avellana), and holm oak (Quercus Ilex).
Black Truffle Tuber Melanosporum
In the past, pigs were used to harvest truffles. Eventually, this custom was abandoned, as it was difficult to transport and to domesticate them. With dogs, once they are trained, these problems no longer exist. It is not necessary to use pedigree dogs, the main thing is to train them from the time they are pups to know how to make the best of their instinct.
