Sweet chestnut (fruit)
The sweet chestnut (also called Spanish Chestnut or European chestnut) originates from southeastern Europe and Asia Minor. It was introduced into more northerly regions during Roman times and later cultivated by monks in the gardens of their monasteries. The 3 - 7 nuts develop within spiny cupules that are shed during October. They are used in confectionery and can also be eaten roasted whole or ground to make flour. The Corsican variety of polenta is made with sweet chestnut flour. A local variety of Corsican beer also uses chestnuts. For a wider view of this location see > LinkExternal link.
