Description

These are whole, pieces or trimmings of ripe English summer / autumn truffles (Tuber aestivum / uncinatum) for tree inoculation. These can be turned into a spore “slurry” (inoculum) and used for:

  • Tree inoculation (saplings or mature trees)
  • Reseeding truffle orchards including Spanish wells (truffle traps).

100g may give enough for 50 trees. We do not provide instructions to inoculate trees but Information can be found on the internet including these videos.

We make no guarantees about success for your particular purpose . You should make sure your soil is the correct pH which can be raised through liming. Producing truffles could take c. 7 years.

Truffles for Inoculation will be removed from our freezer and sent to you by a next day delivery service with a cool pack. They will therefore be partially defrosted and you should use them quickly.
