From Tree To You
We pick them fresh as soon as they naturally drop from the trees. Then we clean them, size them, and promptly store them under humid refrigeration. They are carefully graded to remove defective nuts before being packed. We know you will enjoy these orchard fresh treats. Most people want the freshest possible chestnuts. However, we've found that flavor and sweetness improve after the chestnuts fall from the tree, reaching maximum appeal 2 to 3 weeks after they drop. Consequently, we don't ship chestnuts until they've been off the tree for at least a week.
