Grow your own Truffles and Nuts
Did you know that truffles grow wild in Ireland? Once you have tasted the flavour of fresh truffles you will never want to buy those silly expensive jarred ones again. Thats why we have teamed up with leading botanists to provide saplings inoculated with indigenous Irish truffles that have been produced without contamination to ensure success in a shorter time, with higher yield and reliability. Typically you should expect to see truffles in about three to four years from planting.
The fresh truffles are harvested from June to November and are highly prized for their distinctive flavour, commanding prices as high as €600 per kilo.
A typical plant should live for about 50 years and produce about 1kg of truffles per year on average after 4-6 years .The Hazelnut trees are totally hardy,native plants, suitable for any garden size as they can be pruned, and will grow in most Irish soils because they like lime. They once grew everywhere in Ireland until all the trees were cut down in the famine times and they died out. Now we have a chance to reintroduce them again.You get to enjoy the hazelnuts and the truffles.
The hazel tree is also a great wildlife tree. Planted out in the garden, they should produce highly prized truffles in 3-4 years.
Ample Hazelnuts will also come as a bonus.
A fantastic gift idea for Fungi and nature enthusiasts, Foodies and Gardeners.
Trees supplied as young plants 30-40cm high, with full instruction booklet and a certificate. Price €25 + €8 packaging and shipping.
