Product information

FLAVOUR IS A FRONTIER

Natoora Fresh Italian Chestnuts

- We start the new season for fresh chestnuts in Piedmont in the north of Italy, before moving to the IGP region of Monte Amiata in Tuscany, where they have grown since the 15th century.
- Picked fresh, their lightly-coloured flesh has a sweet and delicate flavour.
- Harvested by hand during their natural season of September to November.
- Varieties will vary from Cecio to Bastarda Rossa to Marrone, according to the point of the season.
- Tuscan chestnuts from Monte Amiata PGI are preserved by either soaking in cold water for up to seven days, without the addition of additives, or through the sterilization of the buts, first in hot and then cold water according to the traditional techniques.

Take it further

- Make a small incision with a knife, roast whole.
- Once roasted peel and crumble onto soups, toss into salads.

Natoora's radical approach to seasonal sourcing is shaping the future of food
We don't work with industrial agriculture or large wholesalers
We work closely with growers who are preserving vital flavours through meaningful small farming
We back these growers to build a better future for food, rooted in small scale, sustainable agriculture that gives back to our planet

generally good quality

These chestnuts were all a good size, they roasted really well, with a beautiful taste. around 15% were rotten and inedible, which is a lower rate than I typically see from chestnuts imported from further afield (e.g. China).

poor quality

We have had three sets of these. one pack had 80% mouldy and the second maggots. The one good set were nice but they are not reliable.

hit and miss

the chestnuts really ranged in sizes , some were massive and some small . Unfortunately some of the chestnuts had gone bad inside and were rather hard to peel after roasting . Not sure if it's just me being unlucky and getting a bad batch but the organic chestnuts by waitrose are better in comparison
