Discover the world of truffles, the real ones.
Wherever you are, become the owner of a truffle tree and get your own French truffles.
I have discovered that new venture, owned by 3 incredible guys, fun people who work hard.
Become the owner of truffle oak trees planted in the best French Lands and receive every year the truffles stemming from your trees.
Birth of the truffle :
The truffle is the fructification of a fungus living in symbiosis with a host tree (oak tree, nut tree, and also hornbeam, lime-tree, willow).
The underground filaments of the mushroom creep into the root cells creating a double structure called the Mycorhize.
At that step, an exchange of good services takes place.
The tree needs the truffle and the truffle needs the tree.
The tree gives sugars to the truffle (carbohydrates) coming from photosynthesis. Meanwhile the mushroom gives the tree mineral salts (phosphorus) and helps the tree to stand chalky soils.
The truffle is nothing but a mushroom which appears in Spring between April and June.
Then, thanks to the hot July days and the August storms, the truffle grows. If there is enough rain and enough heat the truffle will get its normal size at the beginning of September.
