Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, experienced outdoors people and lovers of fresh air, are new owners of a growing truffle farm on their Sandringham estate.
According to Britain’s The Times, Prince Philip, who is an “ardent horticulturist,” planted a grove of more than 300 oak saplings impregnated with truffle spores in 2006. Now, more than 12 years later, his prized mushrooms have come to fruition.
“They have been highly successful,” Adrian Cole of Truffle UK, the company that gave the royals their oak saplings to plant on the Norfolk estate, told The Times. “The majority have been the French Perigord black truffle, as good as you get.”
