We submitted some of our truffles to UBC Okanagan for DNA sequencing and are please and proud to have received absolute confirmation that the “…DNA test 090904B Duckett_Results_Summary on three … samples, providing a high degree of confidence in species identification…” and verifying:
“Sample #1-2008- Tuber melanosporum; 100% identity over 571bp
Sample #2-2009- Tuber melanosporum; 100% identity over 551bp
Sample #3-2009- Tuber melanosporum; 100% identity over 240bp”
Our work to grow black Perigord truffles (T.melanosporum) in Canda has been proven successful. We continue to document seasonal changes and resulting harvests.
