Chestnuts in Obuse

Obuse chestnuts are famous for their large size and great flavor. The acidic soil in Obuse is good for growing chestnuts. Obuse has many shops specializing in chestnuts confections. Many restaurants serve chestnut sweets and foods throughout the year.

Chestnut trees flower in June. Chestnuts have a short harvest season from mid-September to mid-October. Some chestnuts specialties are only available during the harvest period, so the town is especially busy then.
