I don't this this is a question really ... if you can grow truffles (known as [fug-ha] in Arabic) then GROW TRUFFLES :-) and make me jealous as hell.

oh dear here it comes: truffle omlettes, truffle soufles, truffle bread, truffles with beef, truffle oil, truffles with mushrooms, truffle ice cream

do we frequent the same metafilter? i see a lot of things you post here up on that site as well...coincidence? i was just reading about this today...

Yeah, I do visit MF now and then (though I often see stuff elsewhere first) and sometimes post about it (w/linkback, if I remember). Haven't posted anything on MF itself yet, though...

And Shirley, yes, I would try and grow truffles, if I had access to the spore and wasn't confined to oak, which as it says take up to 12 years to produce (if at all), as compared to 7 years for the rapid express perhapsness of the hazelnut. I'm not totally no, though.... if the opp were to afford...

i've never contributed anything either, but it's an easy place to kill a few minutes...there seem to be quite a few japan-based members as well...

oh, i hadn't realised about the growing them part ... i was just thinking about the eating them part. lots and lots to learn about the outdoors

wondering what a metafilter is?

To find that out, Shirley, just click the little 'via' at the lower right corner of the Truffles post..
