Pecan Trees - Truffle #5 Pot
The Truffle Pecan is a native (non-grafted) pecan tree that has been inoculated with a white truffle spore making it a dual purpose tree. These Truffle Pecan trees will provide higher chances of truffle growth if planted in a pecan grove. The truffle spores that are inoculated within our seedlings are T. lyonii, a truffle that can be grown in the U.S.
T. lyonii is considered to be a white truffle, but is very different from the truffles found in Europe. It is a unique fungus with a texture and flavor of its own. It should be noted, however, that truffles can be mistaken for other Fungi, so it is essential that harvesters carefully study truffles before consuming them. Truffle Pecans are perfect for any homeowner interested in trying the earthy flavor of the truffle, while still receiving the delicious nuts of the Pecan tree. The tree grows to a mature height of 75 to 100 feet. To learn more about these dual-purpose trees, visit the University of Florida Fact Sheet.
