  • Truffles, Lake Garda is getting ready for the "Nero Pregiato"

    Truffle seekers on Lake Garda are getting ready for the prized black truffle harvest. Truffles are widespread in the Alto Garda park and these growing areas cover 90% of the truffle harvest on western shores of Lake Garda. The natural production has been greatly reduced over the years and growing areas are essential for the truffle harvest. The season of Tuber Melanosporum, the scientific name for black truffle, starts on 13th December, the day dedicated to Saint Lucy’s Day, very popular among children on Lake Garda and in the province of Brescia, that according to the tradition she is said to bring gifts to good children during this night. A magic day not only for children but also for truffle seekers that hope for a good harvest even though they well know that the drought during summer 2017 has caused a decrease in production. The problem has affected all types of truffle on Lake Garda because dry summer days have inhibited the growth of truffles. But fortunately, rainy days on August and September have favoured the growth so we can hope for a top-quality production. The estimated price pro kilo is between € 500 and € 800.
