Truffle Farming in Aragon and Teruel (Spain)


Diario de Teruel has just published this interesting figure about truffle farming in Aragon area in central Spain, the epicenter of truffle growing in Spain and where probably comes from around 70% of the world black truffle!

Teruel has the 78,2% of the hectares already in production in Aragón and 67% from the total planted in the whole region. 

5.500 hectares are in production in Teruel, and 844 hectares with irrigation systems. The effort to get water and invest in irrigation has busted production in the area with regular yields year to year.

The Teruel growers Association is promoting the Protected Geographical Identification for the Teruel Black Truffle to add value to the product harvested in that region.

Cheers,

Marcos S. Morcillo
