Quality and ripeness

  • The chestnut has a tough, shiny, red-brown skin with a pointy end and black hairs.
  • When peeled, a chestnut is white in colour.
  • Not sure about the ripeness? Put the chestnut in a glass of water. If it sinks, it is edible.


Chestnuts can be roasted, boiled and even puréed.  In some countries chestnut purée is popular in desserts or as a side. The purée works very well with game dishes. Roasted chestnuts with butter are a true delicacy. You can also just peel the chestnuts and eat it as is. Beneath the brown skin there is a white fruit which can be consumed as is.


Did you know that:

  • a sweet chestnut tree can be up to 500 years old?
  • the tree only starts producing chestnuts after the age of 35 to 55?
  • horse chestnuts and sweet chestnuts can be distinguished by their shape?   A sweet chestnut has a tip on top and a horse chestnut is nice and round. Sweet chestnuts are also thinner than their horse counterparts.
