S.Z. Tartufi - Truffles Cultivation

The cultivation of truffles is no longer a pipe dream, in Abruzzo it has been prominent for about 25 years and allows those who want to venture into this business to achieve concrete results. Those who have perseverance and passion will have the opportunity, within a few years, to have excellent results.

The types of truffles that are actually grown are the Tuber melanosporum (black truffle) and Tuber aestivum Vitt. (summer truffle or scorzone). The micorrizza spores of Tuber Magnum Pico (white truffle) are also grown but can be more problematic.

The truffles that are cultivated are often of superior quality to those found in nature, and this because of the privileged conditions in which they grow. The determining factors for the birth of the nose (the plant with which the spores form on the symbiotic relationship with the earth and the amount of water) are controlled step by step thus creating a high quality product.

S.Z. Tartufi has naturally owned truffle (photo) where fine black truffles are grown; constant dedication has allowed the SZ trafuti to obtain its ARSSA certification after only 4 years. This is proof of the huge opportunity to achieve results to be proud of.
