For the second year in a row we have had very hot and dry summer months requiring 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 late 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 but weather to date would not indicate that. 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 and the many. The Truffle Festival is celebrating its tenth year this year and is arguably the longest truffle festival in the world, beginning about the Winter Solstice and running for the duration of the season, more than two months.
