truffle

I am tempted to transport a ton of soil from Alba Italy to try and grow the white truffle here in the states. LOL. A tempting challenge.

Yes.  Make sure they ship the climate, the trees, and the growing conditions, too.

Get that figured out and you'll still have the government officials to bribe to allow in foreign soil and potential pathogens.

I am planning on going to the white truffle festival in Alba this Fall and even going on a truffle hunt with one of the local farmers that offers that experience. I'm going to get some soil samples while I'm there. I know they say you can't grow white truffles anywhere but in Italy but.....

There's something about Oregon's climate. You might want to re-locate Alba to Oregon.......

Yeah they are the most fickle.  People have sunk tons of cash trying to grow them by buying Oaks with roots that have the mycorrhiza, huge forests and nothing.  Soil pH, everything matched.  hahaha.  Maybe someday they will get it down.
