The fruits (seeds) are very nutritious and much less fat than other nuts (starch, protein, sugar and vitamins Bi, B2 and especially C). They are often eaten with Brussels sprouts and wild 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; you get a nut with a very soft, specific taste.

Sweet chestnuts are gluten free.

The Sweet Chestnut is multi-housed, this means that the plant has female and male flowers. Often both, but also sometimes only female or only male flowers.
It is therefore advisable to always put several plants of this kind, so that pollination is not endangered.
It is best to buy them in packs of three.
