«This truffle bed has a sur­face area of 1.07 Ha and was cre­ated in 2 phases.
A first plan­ta­tion on half of the sur­face area, in 1999, with ROBIN TRUFFLE
PLANTS pro­duced from seedlings, and the rest of the plan­ta­tion was planted a year later, in Spring
2000 with ARBRE TRUFFIER CHAM­PION® trees also sup­plied by Pépinières ROBIN

pro­duc­tion than normal on ARBRE CHAM­PION® trees

al­ready har­vested and mar­keted 91 kg of Tuber me­lanosporum on the en­tire parcel of land and the season has not fin­ished.
I also have an­other 8 year old plan­ta­tion, set up within the frame­work of the Ver­champ Pro­gramme

pro­duced from seedlings.
There too on the ARBRE CHAM­PION® trees 'brules' started to ap­pear very early with pro­duc­tion to­wards the 4th year.
This year I have al­ready har­vested more than 20 kg of Tuber me­lanosporum on this parcel!
It should be noted that from the be­gin­ning of planting, I work the soil thor­oughly, I prune my trees and water when

I am ob­vi­ously very very sat­is­fied with PLANT TRUFFIER

which I
carry out reg­u­larly each year.
