Nov. 10: Truffle time soon...

Work in progress - Truffle Oaks

Gathering of the black truffle usually takes place between December and February...However two steps are important to ensure a good result:
  • rainfall in the spring which will enable the young truffles to take shape and the mycorrhiza to take place between the mushroom and its host: oak, hazel tree or others...
  • good rainfall in summer and autumn so that the early spring truffles can develop and reach a worthwhile size!
  • Therefore it seems that 2010 could be a good year for truffles as the rainfall was relatively high and spread over the year.However we still have to wait a while before bearing out these theories!
