We now offer hazelnut and chestnut seed, but these food nuts are not for planting.
NOW TAKING ORDERS for 2015 Harvest!
For most harvests, Chestnuts begin shipping November 10, and Hickories not before December 10, due to processing and curing requirements. Fresh chestnuts can be available until early spring if we don't sell out before then, and hazels and hickories can be available all year.
Because of limited availability, we cannot guarantee to fill all orders. Nuts may be subject to quarantine laws in some states.
Hickory-Pecan Sampler 1 lb: $9.50
These look mostly like shagbark or shellbark hickories, but the shells are thin enough to crack with a hand cracker! Most nuts taste like premium pecan, some will have a good real hickory taste, and some will even taste like black walnut. Limited supply, and in 1-pound packages only.
Pre-Cracked Hickory-Pecan Sampler 1 lb: $12.50
Available only in MN, pre-cracked so you can get to the nutmeats faster! Kernels and shells together; you'll probably want a nut pick, and may need a hand cracker to finish the job for a few of the nuts. Limited supply, and in 1-pound packages only.
Hazelnut Sampler 1 lb: $5.50 2 lbs: $8.75 5 lbs: $18.25
Large- and medium-sized Hazelnuts in shell. Quite a variety of shapes and types from our plantings. Varied flavor as well, ranging from robust wild American through delicate European. Peak flavor for the season is usually around February.
Pre-Cracked Hazelnut Sampler 1 lb: $8.50 2 lbs: $12.50
Available only in MN, pre-cracked so you can get to the nutmeats faster! Kernels and shells together; most of the kernels are wholes and halves, with some smaller pieces as well, and a few uncracked nuts. Peak flavor for the season is usually around February.
Chestnut Sampler 1 lb: $14.25 2 lbs: $22.50 5 lbs: $39.50
Large Chestnuts 1 lb: $15.75 2 lbs: $25.25 5 lbs: $43.00
Large Chestnuts (45-55 nuts per lb), nearly the same size as European chestnuts but much sweeter! Try them and see!
Old-Fashioned 1 lb: $16.85 2 lbs: $26.25 5 lbs: $48.50
These hybrid old-fashioned Chestnuts have the same size and sweet flavor of the old wild American chestnuts killed by blight decades ago. They are pretty small, but if you want the authentic experience of days gone by, these are the ones!
Packaged Chestnuts in 1-lb. and 2-lb. quantities.
Chestnuts begin shipping November 10.
Hazelnuts and Hickories begin shpping no earlier than December 10, though we do sometimes have nuts from the previous crop still available.
