Shells crack open easily and the Walnuts have a great flavor. Overall excellent quality
I bought more walnuts than I could use so I gave some of them as gifts over Christmas! Everyone loved them. I am freezing the excess as they gave me a link on how to do that! So cool.
Our walnuts came on time and every single one we tried so far was delicious. They are new harvest and fresh; once you try, you get to see the difference between “proper” walnuts and store walnuts.
My Mom had an uncle who had walnut trees. When I was a kid (many MANY years ago), we would go to the orchards and get to pick up walnuts and stuff them into big gunny sacks and then get paid $3 a bag for it. That was money that we used for Christmas. The reason I tell this story is that by getting exposure to fresh picked walnuts, we knew what a walnut was supposed to taste like - not the slightly stale and sometimes rancid excuses for walnuts that one gets in the grocery store. The walnuts that I purchased from Chinchiolo Farming are the real deal and bring back memories of the fresh walnuts from many years past. I purchased the walnuts in the shell. They don't come any fresher than that, unless perhaps you were at the farm and picked them yourself. Thank you for the excellent quality walnuts. And by the way, the gunny sack that these came in is such a nice touch!
I bought two boxes, one for me and one to share with friends. They are best walnuts without a doubt.
