These are "IN-SHELL," meaning you will need to crack out the walnuts yourself. We just completed our first harvest of Chandlers on October 7th and are finishing drying the walnuts and shipping out this week. These are absolutely the freshest walnuts you can buy. They are the premium Chandler variety, known for light meats and mild walnut flavor.
Please note that we don't use pesticides, fungicides, or ripeners on the trees or walnuts, but we are not yet certified organic. We do hope to obtain that certification in the future. Still, you are receiving a far more natural product than you are typically able to purchase in store.
