Marchese Castanhas (Chestnuts)
Galician Chestnuts come from Chesnut trees grown under particularly favorable soil conditions, with low ph. and moderate active limestone rich in organic matter. The manual harvesting of the chestnuts within 48 hours of falling from the tree, combined with the selection, cleaning and preservation operations prior to freezing, guarantees their optimal preservation. Scherini marron chestnuts contain a reduced percentage of septate and high starch content for a sweeter taste.
