CityNews – A white truffle has been found in the Doi Stuhep-Pui Nation Park by the Department of Biology Chiang Mai University challenging all theories that suggest truffles cannot grow in tropical areas.

 

A research team headed by Prof Dr Saisamorn Lumyong, Dr Nakarin Suwannarach and Dr Chaturong Khumla from Department of Biology Chiang Mai University first founded a new white truffle species in 2014 named Tuber thailandicum of which was given a common name white truffle thep sukhon by Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. In 2015, the team continued their research and found another new species Tuber lannaense and in the latest research, the team found the Italian white truffle or Tuber magnatum, which is the most expensive truffle in the world was successfully grown.

Damned confusing reading.... I will edit OP's posts if he/she asks. 

 

Were the truffles founded as in a charity organisation  or were the truffles deliberately grown?

National Park truffle or laboratory truffle. Don't understand, it seems to have been grown but then popped up in the National Park somehow.

Looking at the photo, and the word in the article "research"  deliberately grown.

Similar climate to parts of northern Italy where they grow for a couple of months every year, maybe??

Yes, this article is somewhat confusing. But the real story here is that finding truffles growing in Thailand -- either planted or wild -- proves that truffles can indeed grow in tropical Thailand. This is great news for truffle dealers and those who love to eat truffles. The very rare and delicious mushrooms are probably the most expensive food -- of any kind -- in the world.

You are right, the author does not seem to understand what he's writing.

Don't find it confusing at all, they found truffles in the national park. They continue their research and found more species - three total. End of story. They never said they grew it, it was found, now they are looking into to see if it can be farmed.
