Storing FRESH CHESTNUTS
Unlike other types of nuts, fresh chestnuts are highly perishable and require proper handling and storage methods to prevent spoilage.
Chestnuts should be refrigerated just as soon as they land on your doorstep. To help with this, we send tracking information for each order so customers know when their package will arrive and can make arrangements to unpack it quickly.
Once unpacked, we recommend placing the chestnuts in the coldest part of your refrigerator. Chestnuts keep best in very humid conditions (90% humidity is ideal) and at temperatures just a few degrees above freezing. While it's possible that fresh chestnuts will keep longer, they are generally best when used within a couple of weeks.
