There are several species of truffles but I choose to sell only the tuber melanosporum, the black truffle of the Périgord, emblematic of the south west of France. In order to guarantee the quality I undertake to select the best truffles. The shipment is under vacuum immediately after the harvest. It may happen that due to a breakdown of stock I am obliged to supply myself to my fellow truffle around.
I find 75% of the truffles under the trees of my plantation: green oak, pubescent oak and hazel. The young trees were bought mycorrhizal. I find the other 25% under spontaneous trees of the property, ie trees under which the truffle grows naturally!
The size of the truffles
The truffles are brushed, washed and "Pocketed", A small part is removed with a knife for checking. The pulpit must be black, veined with white, firm without being hard. This removes frozen, immature or simply rotten truffles.
