Maturity is very much in advance as we are seeing many more black truffles compared to previous years but it remains only the 2nd week and some are still light-coloured which is normal. Quantities are still limited

15th December 2019:
There has been very little quantities at the market of Richereenches and in the Southwest again this week with a very high demand for Christmas leading to very high prices this week.
Maturity is getting better
8th December 2019:
This week, quantities are very limited because of all the rain we had. Indeed, this made it very difficult to go and harvest truffles; therefore quantities available are about half less from last week.
You will find below our prices for this week. Because of very little
quantities, we can only confirm this price for the first half of the week. We will update you about the situation on Wednesday.
1st December 2019:
We have seen lots of truffles on the markets and therefore prices remain steady. Quality is getting a lot better and we are really seeing many more mature truffles.

22nd April 2019:
The season is now officially closed until October 2019!
The season of the Fresh Summer Truffle has now started!
24th March 2019:
Quantities remain low as we are closing the season. We might have one more week following this week but it still remains very uncertain.
10th March 2019:
The end of the season is really getting closer as available quantities are
dropping and as well as the size of the truffles. Most of the truffles are around 30g with very few larger ones.
3rd March 2019:
Quantities are starting to go down and most likely we will also start seeing less large size trufﬂes

We had a lot of rain lately that have made it difficult to go and harvest truffles. We are still quite confident that once we start getting better weather conditions, we will be getting more truffles as more farmers will be able to go harvesting.
18 November 2018:
This weekend was the opening of the black truffle season. As expected. the harvest is looking good ans prices are a lot better than last year (nearly half).
Quality is as expected for the beginning of the season. Some truffles have a good colour and some are still a little lighter
28 October 2018:
We are getting closer to the official opening of the black truffle season.
This year the official opening will be on the 17th of November with the first market of Carpentras followed by the market of Richerenches on Saturday.
Why this date? It has been in fact decided with the FFT (French Federation of Truffficulteur) that the 1st market of Carpentras and Richerenches will be held the following Friday and Saturday of November 15th.
This year, we are expecting a better harvest than last year in the South East of France. Indeed we had some good rains in the early stages (April May June) when the truffles start appearing along with good rain in July and a few storms early August. We hope that that the few dry weeks we had in September did not do too much damage. But we are seeing some crops in the truffle farms so it is a good sign that the truffles are there. The South West and West part of France will most likely have less truffles than last years as they suffered more from the heatwave and little rain.
We will be updating you regularly as we get closer to the beginning of the season
