Truffles Found by Frank under English Oak trees

At Fish River Truffles, our truffles flourish beneath the canopy of three distinguished trees: the venerable English Oak, the elegant French Oak, and the charming Hazelnut. Through meticulous compound analysis, it has been discovered that the flavor and aroma of truffles can vary based on their arboreal origins.


The truffle you've chosen was expertly hunted by none other than Frank, our esteemed truffle dog, from beneath the majestic branches of our English Oak trees (Quercus robur), imparting it with a unique aroma that embodies the essence of our terroir.
