Truffles

What is a Truffle?

A truffle is the fruiting body of an underground mushroom or tuber. Spore dispersal happens naturally through animals or by the inoculation of the tree roots under laboratory conditions. Oak and hazel trees are the most common trees used for inoculation and plantation development.

We focus on the Black Périgord Truffle (Tuber Melanosporum) for the following reasons:

  • It is the second most valuable truffle
  • It is the most successfully cultivated truffle
  • Our farm is located where soil and climate conditions are perfect for maximising crop levels.
