We are currently taking orders for the 2011 season. Growers are now preparing their orchards, and arranging their sales contracts. Harvest will run from late February until early May.

Chestnuts are a perishable product. Under the right refrigerated conditions, they should keep for at least six months without significant deterioration. However, most growers will not hold chestnuts, without firm sales outlets.

Generally export quantities of chestnuts are not stored without a reasonably firm commercial outlet.

Our chestnuts are generally packed in 20kg 'netlon' (nylon net) bags, but other alternatives are possible, depending upon customer requirements. Nuts can be sea-freighted, either chilled or frozen, or air freighted chilled. A sea container will take 12 tonnes, an air container approx 1.2 tonnes.

Whole, machine-peeled chestnuts selaed in a 500gm and 1 kg plastic bag. Kept frozen, this product will have a storage life in excess of 9 months.

The delicious taste of Chestnut Stuffing for poultry, pork or vegetarian dishes. Simply add water and a knob of butter to create a great stuffing for your chicken or turkey.

Alternatively, can be used to create a basting for chicken or pork pieces.

This is peeled, crumbed chestnut product produced in a factory in the heart of New Zealand's chestnut growing region. The product has a soft texture, with a delicate flavour, and the capacity to absorb a moderate amount of moisture. It is equally delicious in savoury as in sweet dishes, is quite exceptionally low in fat, and is totally gluten free.

It is frozen and packed in 500gm resealable plastic bags, with a safe storage time of several months at least, and can be quickly thawed and used in a wide variety of domestic and production recipes.

Must be kept frozen. Available for immediate shipment.

Available for delivery in later 2011.

Available in May 2011.
