During March we have seen our first plantation
of the year getting underway in France, with has trees inoculated with the Black Winter Truffle. This species thrives in the milder Mediterranean climates
and is very valuable; prices reached a whopping €1250 per kilo this month.
We also have new plantations in the UK with trees inoculated with the British summer truffle. The Summer Truffle has a broad tolerance of climate and can grow as far north as Sweden, which makes it an ideal species to cultivate.

The world’s biggest black truffle?

What could be the world’s biggest black truffle was sold last month in the south of France. The 1.3kg black Périgord truffle (Tuber melanosporum) went on sale in the farm market of the French south-western town of Sarlat. The massive subterranean fungus is the biggest ever found and sold in Périgord, which is historically the most famous truffle producing region of France. Winter truffles are currently being sold for about 1,000 euro (£828) per kg on southern France farmer’s markets, and we estimate that this one sold for around 1,500 euro.
