The best and largest chestnuts you get from this excellent tree. Good production can be expected from an early age.
The husks contain thick, large, shiny fruits that contain a lot of delicious flesh. It can become a large tree depending on the type of soil.

Fruit: The fruits (seeds) are very nutritious and much less fat than the other nuts (starch, protein, sugar and vitamins Bi, B2 and especially C). They are often eaten with Brussels sprouts and game dishes. In the French Ardèche, a sweet puree is made from it (crème des marrons). This is used for dessert or sandwich filling. Sweet chestnuts can be dried and you get a nut with a very soft, specific taste.
