The rare desert Israeli Truffles which cost more than uranium and slightly less than silver may soon find themselves available for purchase as reasonable prices
Rare and expensive Israeli Truffles traditionally found in the desert by local Israelis and Bedouins may no longer be a hide-and-seek game.
Researchers from the Ramat HaNegev Desert Agriculture Center in Israel’s southern Negev Desert have made a breakthrough in cultivating the rare $120/pound truffle by creating a symbiosis between two fungi species. The highly sought-after delicacy used in Italian and French dishes can now be harvested in large quantities in small areas compared to previous cultivation, which called for a massive area and only a small yield, if you were skilled enough to find them in the wild.
The basic idea behind this new cultivation practice entails that the rare Terfezia leonis fungus and the common desert shrub nicknamed “The Desert Trap” Helianthemum sessiliflorum can be “harvested in small areas in unprecedented yields.” The cost-effectiveness of this truffle is boosted by the need for only a little water and no fertilizer.
Farmers in the Negev even have big ideas for tourism, as truffle hunting may become an attraction for families. Imagine that, a weekend hunting rare Israeli Truffles in the desert!
