Wild truffles in Finland

Several wild borchii truffles were found in Finland only recently after a scientific survey. The small quantity previously reported may not be indicative of the country’s wild-harvest potential as a recent article in the Helsingin Sanomat (international edition) proves. With the increase of truffle interest in the Finnish media, truffle awareness has grown and so too have truffle finds.

Wild truffles in Finland

Several wild borchii truffles were found in Finland only recently after a scientific survey. The small quantity previously reported may not be indicative of the country’s wild-harvest potential as a recent article in the Helsingin Sanomat (international edition) proves. With the increase of truffle interest in the Finnish media, truffle awareness has grown and so too have truffle finds.
This September, a startled gardener in an Eastern Finnish city, dug up over 50 truffles from his compost heap. Amongst the leaf litter and detritus were a nice clutch of borchii truffles (Tuber borchii). This was one of the largest truffle finds in Finland. In addition, in July over 70 truffles were found in the flower bed of a summer cottage.
Interest in truffles is growing in Finland and our first Finnish Plantation will be established this autumn. For further information on this please get in contact: Shop@PlantationSystems.com or +44(0)1433 659 167
