Decline in supply of winter truffles

Unfortunately the winter truffle had had a tough time of it lately. This season’s cold weather and heavy frosts means that much of the harvest has reportedly been lost or damaged. The cold weather is resulting in a higher number of smaller and frost damaged truffles. Fortunately, only some production areas have been hit and the problem is greatest in wild sites rather than well managed plantations.

Happily, thanks to their different production season, Summer Truffles have not been affected by the cold weather and we even had a good quality UK harvest at the end of January - very late for the summer truffle, especially after temperatures of minus 15 degrees Celsius!
