Aspromonte chestnuts

Chestnuts are grown in Aspromonte since ancient times and are now considered as a typical food product that characterize the gastronomic culture of the Gallico valley. Before rural depopulation, chestnut was considered the main food in the farmers diet, as it is very nutritious and rich, and can be used either as a fruit or flour. The chestnut was also called "bread tree" because it was entirely used: from the leaves to the branches, from its fruits to the flowers (the famous chestnut honey).
