Changing colours of the trees and promising isolated groundswell in the truffiere indicates the lead up to the 2017 truffle season. The very hot and dry summer months required diligent monitoring of moisture content and irrigation to ensure a good fruiting season. Growers are hoping for the onset of the usual cold weather in April to promote the ripening ahead of the commencement of harvest in June. If we have a particularly early start to winter, harvest could begin late May. We will keep you posted.
We hope to see you visit and enjoy the opportunities offered by the Truffle Festival, including the Bluefrog Truffle Hunts.
