Areas with Suitable Climate for Tuber melanosporum
The Burgundy truffle (Tuber aestivum/uncinatum) can be cultivated across most climates in North America. The Périgord black truffle (Tuber melanosporum), however, requires more moderate climates. The below map identifies locations with both summer and winter temperatures suitable for the Périgord black truffle.
(1) If you are located among a cluster of locations with tree logos but without actually having a tree logo at your exact location, chances are that you have a suitable climate. Not every town or city has accessible temperature data, and yours may simply be missing for this temperature analysis.
(2) If your location isn’t marked with a tree logo, that does NOT automatically mean it’s not suitable for the Périgord black truffle. Again, that may simply mean temperature data for your region could be missing and we weren’t able to confirm the suitability. In any case, you will still be able to grow the Burgundy truffle as it is more versatile across most climates. Please contact us for more detailed assessment of truffle feasibility in your location.
