Truffle - White - host Pinus pinea

$79.00 ($79.00-$129.00 choose a size)

The Bianchetto or little white truffle is from Tuscany. Truffles have a pungent aroma that can be loosely described as of fresh earth and sweet mushrooms. Throughout history people have constantly failed to adequately describe the aroma and flavour of a premium truffle, contributing to the mystique of this exotic fungi. Their taste can permeate and enhance many foods such as soups, dips and pates, salads, sauces, dressings, omelettes and main meals. The irresistible allure of their unique aroma, flavour and taste accounts for their gourmet status, and demand by consumers, and makes them a highly valued ingredient. The host tree is the Pine Nut, or Pinus pinea which produces the delicious nuts, they are inoculated with truffle mycorrhiza. In Europe, truffles thrive in nutrient poor, calcareous (lime) soils and a temperate climate. Therefore to establish a truffiare in Australia you will require an area with a similar climate, including rainfall & winter frosts, sufficient available water for drought proofing, and apply a great deal of lime to replicate the European soil types. They need cold winter temperatures with a few frosts. Hot summer temperatures for initiating truffle formation. Free draining soils, suitable for altering with lime. Sufficient rainfall or irrigation water.

Brazilian Sissoo Spinach

I planted this in a bad position where an asparagus soon completely covered it. It survived. After a year I moved it to a spot that is still shady but does get more light and it started thriving. Tastes great and super easy to grow cuttings.

A good year round supplier of leafy greens.  Good spinach substitute for tropical climate.  Should be cooked if consumed in large amounts due to oxalic acid content. Can be eaten raw in salads, etc but consumption should be restricted of the raw leaf...

Great replacement for spinach when it's to hot and lettuce and English spinach go to bolt. Growing great in a pot only need to water once a week. This has done great in Melbourne. I love it.
