Fresh Mushrooms

Fresh Mushrooms

During mushroom season harvesting is done on a daily basis. After being picked, sorted and cleaned, certain quantities of fresh mushrooms are packed in lightweight polypropylene boxes and transported to the airport in refrigerated trucks for immediate export, directly to their destination countries.

Fresh wild mushrooms are exported no more than 24hrs after harvesting due to their short shelf life.

Tuber Aestivum Vitt is the scientific name for the Summer Truffle. Like the Black Winter Truffle, these truffles are also black in colour. Therefore, they are commonly referred to as Black Summer Truffles.
