I have been purchasing chestnuts from Chestnut ridge for several years. I usually obtain the extra large nuts and eat several and plant the rest. After proper conditioning(peat moss and 40 degrees)almost all of them sprout and have a very good tap root. These I have planted on my property out in the woods of Arkansas. I currently have more than a hundred trees from five to one year growing well on my 160 acres. These are scattered randomly, not in an orchard setting. Probably the only Chestnut forest in Arkansas. My trees had their first nuts this year, and I look forward to the deer, turkeys, bears, squirrels, and rabbits enjoying many, many more next year. The nuts are delicious, large, and almost 100 % viable. The service is outstanding and the prices are very, very affordable. We are greatly Blessed to have the Dunstan Chestnuts available to return them to nature. I have never had a bad nut and they germinate wonderfully. Look forward to several more years of purchasing and planting nuts from Chestnut Ridge before my operation is self sustaining:nuts for me to eat and nuts for the squirrels to plant in the wild.

I ordered 3 lbs. of “extra large” chestnuts. The intent was to combine them with some other items to make a special gift. Unfortunately, upon opening the package I was really disappointed in thesize of the nuts. There were only three that I would consider large…all others were small with numerous ones about the size of a quarter. Needless to say I could not use them and had to go to a grocery store to acquire some that would not be an embassment to send. Dealt with this company before and have bought their products (via online and direct from resellers) with no issues. Not sure what happened here but very disappointed.

This was my first time ordering from Chestnut Ridge and I am happy with the service and quality of the chestnuts. Checkout and shipping were very simple and prompt respectively. I’ve already roasted and eaten some of them and they were delicious.

You guys have the BEST Chestnuts. I have tried many many places, and without a doubt these are the best in the Country. I am not just saying that. You only have to try them once and you will not believe how easy these are to peel, and enjoy. The size are much bigger than what you get at other places.

Just received my chestnuts. They look really good. I ordered the extra large since I will be planting most of them. Hopefully they will germinate well. Three quarters of them were very large. The other quarter were a little smaller – not what I would call extra large.. I am still very satisfied with them. Tasted a few of them and they are very good.

Best chesnuts ever..

These chestnuts are so yummy! I criss cross the nuts with a sharp knife and soak them in salt water for about a half hour. Then I roast them in a covered pan with butter. I can’t get enough of them. When all I have left are the empty shells, I am still looking for more!

My very first time eating chestnuts. Smelled delicious and tasted like a dry sweet potato. I made chestnut soup and my children devoured it. Can’t wait to grow my own!

AMAZING as always. I have never gotten bad chestnuts from chestnut Ridge. When I am roasting them it reminds me of when I was a child and my mom and dad would roast them. Thank you so much for your excellent product and memories!!

Very fresh, with few bad ones. I don’t doubt a few turned bad because I had stored them in the fridge for a month without opening the well-sealed box they came in. They keep well. My first box was ordered in early Nov., opened and eaten from early December to early January and most were very fresh and delicious. I will only buy these chestnuts!

This was my first order for chestnuts and they were awesome! We had them New Years Eve and everyone loved them! We are so impressed we have decided to plant an acre of chestnuts on our farm. Thank you so much for them and the quick shipping.

I am in Arkansas, and have ordered extra large Dunstan Chestnuts from Chesnut Ridge for at least three years. My primary use for these large and delicious nuts is for planting, not eating. Yes, I have roasted and eaten many of these, but most have been planted, some in Rootmaker(t) pots, and many directly into the soil. The germination rate is well over 88%, and the survival rate has been nearly 75%. I now have over one hundred, one to three year old trees on my property and am looking forward to the next three years when they start to bear nuts. Every thing about Chestnut Ridge is fantastic and the products are of the highest quality, as is the customer service. I am eagerly awaiting my next shipment of extra large nuts to get cold stratified and plant when they germinate around March. Thank you Chestnut Ridge.

Best chestnuts !

I’m a repeat customer because of the quality of chestnuts I receive from Chestnut Ridge. I just oven roasted a 5-pound bag and only had 2-chestnuts that were not high-quality. Unbelievable when compared to supermarkets or some other internet providers I’ve used. I’ll continue using Chestnut Ridge.

We’ve been ordering from Chestnut Ridge for a few years now and love the quality and customer service. Best chestnuts this side of the pond! Big, full kernels with exquisite flavor. Shipping is quick and efficient.

I’ve been ordering from pike county for a few years now. I’ve only ever had one or two floaters per order (each order was 2-3 lbs) and the chestnuts have always been very big and high quality. They are WAY WAY WAY better than the ones I’ve found locally. I eat some and germinate some each time that I order and have always had a high germination rate for the ones I have planted. A+ seller

I recently bought four pounds of X-Large chestnuts. They were not X-Large but they were some of the best chestnuts I have eaten. Will definitely order again.

Best chestnuts I have ever had.

This is my first order. I have read GOOD reviews about this company and thought I would buy some of the chestnuts for planting !!!!!!

I’ve been ordering chestnuts from Chestnut Ridge for several years now and have never been disappointed. I live in the Chicago area and the chestnuts in the grocery stores around here are terrible with a good percentage of them already rotten. I have never had a single bad chestnut from Chestnut Ridge. They are fantastic!
