Perigord Black Truffles

Updated: Feb 17, 2021

French Black Perigord Truffles (Tuber Melanosporum) originate from the Perigord region in France. At Robertson Truffles, these treasures grow around the roots of our Quercus Ilex & Quercus Robur Oak trees. We harvested the beautiful truffle pictured below last season.

French gourmet Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin called truffles "the diamond of the kitchen". Edible truffles are held in high esteem in French, Croatian, Georgian, Bulgarian, Greek, Italian, Middle Eastern, and Spanish cuisine, as well as in international haute cuisine.

The truffles grow as the fruit of the fungus (mycelium) which colonises the roots of the oak trees and spreads into the soil. The tree and the mycelium have a symbiotic relationship which is truly fascinating. We'll tell you about it on our Truffle Hunt!

Robertson Truffles is located at Robertson in the ‘Green Heart’ of the Southern Highlands NSW. Rich soil, a cold and pristine environment, plus regular rainfall all contribute to our productive truffiere. Robertson Truffles are of high quality and have an excellent aroma and flavour.
