How Do Truffles Grow in Canada?

Canadian Black Perigord Truffles

The Black Perigord Truffle and all truffles are a mycorrhizal fungus, and it can only complete it’s full cycle with a host plant; such as our Garry Oak or Hazel trees. Truffle growers use agronomic techniques aimed at the production of truffles.

Joseph Talon ( 1793 – 1873 ), a native of the hamlet of Croagnes, in Saint-Saturnin-d’Apt , had the idea of ​​planting acorns in one of his lands in 1808. About ten years later, while he was hiding with his pig, it came out of this earth several kilos of black rabasses . This fine harvest of truffles encouraged him to continue. He bought bad land and sowed it with acorns.

The success was there. Joseph Talon got rich, it was the Apt market broker who spilled the beans. Talon made a fortune with his truffles. As everyone had seen him plant acorns, he was imitated. The foothills of the mountains of Vaucluse , covered with oaks, more than 200 owners were applicants and in a hurry. Joseph Talon then sold truffle plants, the first mycorrhizal plants in history.

The rumor spread as far as the truffle market in Carpentras, Auguste Rousseau, a truffle trader, in 1847, bought himself from Talon. And when he presented his truffles at the universal expo in Paris, he won the gold medal. Truffle farming was born. This allowed, in 1875, the municipality of Saint-Saturnin d’Apt, to sell six tons of truffles. In 1909, 35,000 kilograms were sold on the Apt market . The participants in the second international truffle meetings which took place in Ménerbes on paid homage to Joseph Talon, the father of modern truffle growing and recalled that the Vaucluse is its cradle.

Here in Canada, Trufficulture and the farming of Truffles was brought here by our parents Grant & Betty Duckett. They began their trials in the early 2000s and found the same success as Joseph Talon. We continue the Trufficulture here in Parksville, Canada at The Truffle Farm of Parksville.
