Region: Trás-os-Montes

It is in the cold land of Trás-os-Montes that is concentrated the cultivation of the chestnut, about 85% of the total production of Portugal. It is not surprising then that chestnut is called the “gold” of Trás-os-Montes.The main varieties are Longal, with a smaller shape, with a better taste and better for keeping, also Judia and Marron, these ones bigger and, therefore, visually more appealing.
