We Expanded Our Research and Demonstration Truffle Orchards This Week!
On Wednesday, we expanded our Black Perigord truffle research/demonstration area by planting over 70 inoculated filbert trees. These trees were generously donated by Garland Truffles. The new orchard is located right next to our existing orchard at the Mountain Research Station in Waynesville, NC. As you can see from the pictures, this is a beautiful location for our orchards!
We pruned our established orchard in February.
Our established truffle orchard is visible in the background here, just behind the new planting area. The trees were planted in the spring of 2010.
