Another successful season in NSW and Victoria. The weather was wetter and warmer than the previous year. We found more growers starting to find truffle. We’re always pleased when a growers first truffles are found after years of work.
Cold weather, with plenty of frosts and even snow. Good finds in NSW in the last few weeks. Hard-working Sirius and Perigord sniffed out plenty of truffle. Happy truffle producers with finds of between three and six kilograms of quality truffle. Some quantity of over-ripe truffle, mainly on the surface. But digging produced good quality truffle further down.
One tree produced eight beautiful truffles totalling around 750 grams. Other trees have unripe truffle waiting for harvest. Most trees producing truffle are Ilex, aged between six and fifteen years. Next hunt at the beginning of August. Contact us now for a search.
