Our farm fresh chestnuts are shipped direct from the farm as soon as the harvest begins. We do not use pesticides and our nuts are not fumigated. This size chestnut is anything over 1 1/4'' at the widest point and although rare in Chinese chestnuts can be bigger than a golf ball. We will begin shipping September 3rd on a first come first serve basis, orders will be filled as the chestnuts are harvested. Thanks for your business!
