Truffles are grown in the pristine Tasmanian environment where we have the cleanest air in the world. This environment is ideal for the production of the black truffle and the quality of the truffles is second to none in Australia. Preferred by many chefs across the globe as a premium product. truffles of tasmania truffles are well recognised as having a stronger and sweeter perfume than other parts of Australia which we believe is due to our cooler and longer growing season.
We sell only truffles produced on our own 50 hectare plantation near Deloriane in northern Tasmania.
Truffles of Tasmania is the largest, most mature and commercial Oak tree plantation producing Black Truffle (tuber melanosporum) in Australia. First established in 2000, the 50 hectares of plantation is today an impressive stand of English/French Oak (Quercus robur - deciduous) and Holm Oak (Quercus ilex - evergreen) .
We guarantee our product to be what we say it is in both origin and quality.
Tips for Keeping Truffles
Of course truffles are best enjoyed fresh, but they will keep for up to two weeks if necessary by storing them in a sealed glass jar wrapped in paper towelling in a normal domestic fridge. As truffles are a living body they need to breath and sweat. In fact truffles can lose up to 3% of their weight daily, so it is important to change the towelling regularly. Due to the very strong perfume we recommend glass container storage. Plastic storage may sometimes allow the aroma to penetrate into everything in the fridge!
