Nella Chestnut Farm only sells Colossal Chestnuts.
Nella Chestnut Farm only grows one type of chestnut - the Colossal Chestnut. The Colossal Chestnut is thought to be a hybrid of Asian and European chestnuts. The chestnuts mature and fall to the ground at the end of September. In the past, the chestnuts had been harvested by hand. Since 2005, the chestnuts have been harvested by a harvester. When annual production reached 4,000 pounds in 2004, it became difficult to harvest, clean, store and package the crop by hand. Nella Chestnut Farm Colossal Chestnuts sell for $10.00 a pound, shipping included.
