Truffle trees make perfect gifts for people who enjoy their food. They are unusual presents for any occasion – birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, weddings or retirement. Simply plant a truffle tree and sit back and wait for your truffle crop to develop. In optimum conditions these trees start to produce truffles 4-7 years from planting1. You can choose from an English Oak (Quercus robur), Evergreen (Holm) Oak (Quercus ilex) or European Hazel (Corylus avellana) that has had its roots inoculated with Black Summer truffle or Black Winter (Périgord) truffle. The trees are approximately 1 year old and UK grown. At this age, the hazel trees are between 60cm – 90cm tall, the oak trees vary in size from around 15cm to 40cm.
For further information on growing, tree and truffle species, soils, planting, buying, delivery, travelling with trees and looking for truffles, please see our Truffle Tree FAQ (Frequently asked questions) before contacting us.
You may choose to have each truffle tree individually gift bagged with a tag (please supply greeting in the ‘Order notes’ at the checkout) or packed ready for planting. All trees come with a planting booklet. Please let us know if you require more than one with your order.
We can also send truffle tree gift vouchers by email if you would like to give trees as a present to be delivered at the recipient’s convenience. These include the cost of GB mainland standard delivery.
We are very sorry but we no longer send trees to addresses outside of the UK and at present cannot send to Northern Ireland. We hope this is rectified as soon as possible.
The English Truffle Company accepts no liability for truffle tree losses due to unsuitable or inadequate planting and growing conditions.
* A tree can only be of one species and inoculated with one species of truffle. If you are ordering more than one tree and you would like to order a mix of tree and / or truffle species please put the details of your chosen combinations in the ‘Order Notes’ at the checkout.
1The trees are all certified as being inoculated with the appropriate truffle fungus. They will however, only produce truffles under optimum conditions – if the tree remains healthy, is watered and the soil conditions are right then you may produce truffles.

The order arrived safe and sound, and the recipient is very pleased with them. Thank you very much for your help with this. The presentation/packaging is very nice too. Ian, Cambridge
I would thoroughly recommend The English Truffle Company to anyone. Their service is impeccable – James was on hand at all times to answer any queries and they even sent me out an extra truffle tree by next day delivery so that it arrived in time for Christmas even though it was the parcel company that had misplaced the package. Their products are very luxurious despite being very well priced. 5* company all round! Will definitely be buying from The English Truffle Company again! NG, Sunderland
Brilliant thanks. You are the easiest company I have dealt with this year! Have a great Christmas. Amy, Hampshire
