OUR CULINARY CHESTNUTS

chestnuts We grow several species of chestnuts, but for culinary use we sell only specially selected Chinese chestnuts (Castanea mollissima) and a few Chinese-type hybrids. Because of their sweet flavor and ease of peeling, we consider this species to be the best. We continually plant new trees and remove inferior trees. Over the past 15 years, we have cut down over 1,000 bearing trees because of their inferior nut quality. What we have left are truly the best, and our standards keep going up.

We sell three sizes of chestnuts: medium (less than 1 in.), large (1 to 1.125 in.) and extra large (greater than 1.125 in.). All sizes have the same quality and flavor. They are carefully cleaned and graded to ensure more than 95% sound chestnuts at shipping time. Fresh chestnuts are available only during October and November.

Our smaller chestnuts are dried or made into chestnut flour. Dried chestnuts and chestnut flour are available all year. Visit our preparation page to learn how to use dried chestnuts. Our recipe page will give you tips on using chestnut flour as an ingredient.
