The 2018 Australian Truffle Season coming soon
Truffles are harvested in winter once they have matured and are emitting the sweet perfume they are known and loved for. In Australia, the truffles are found from just below the soil surface to a depth of 20 cm by specially trained dogs that use their sensitive noses to search for the truffles.
Varying in size, from just two centimetres in diameter to as large as a grapefruit, the truffles outward appearance belies its sensual appeal and extraordinary culinary value. The Black Truffle has a shelf life of approximately three weeks after harvesting whilst it retains its distinctive taste and aroma.
To be one of the first to enjoy the sheer delight of a fresh truffle then you can order your truffles online, your truffle will then be shipped to you immediately it comes out of the ground. The first truffles came out of the ground in the first/second week of June. We are unable to commit mother nature to a specific date and that in itself adds to the mystique and joy of fresh truffles.
