Cultivation of truffles was very elusive, and was essentially non-existent until the late 18th and early 19th centuries. At that time, tree seedlings from the wild were transplanted in southern France, and cultivation began to supplement wild collected truffles. Until the 1970’s, very little advancement was made in the cultivation of truffles.
Truffle production has steadily declined in Europe after World War II. However, this era provided a steady base of knowledge that we have utilized to develop brand-new inoculation methods with incredible results. Now, it is achievable with our technology to produce 20, 50, or even 200 lbs. of black truffle per acre. However, results are dependent upon climate and soil properties.
