The Brown Monti Cimini is a brown chestnut of the Florentine quality and is grown between 500 and 700 meters above sea level. The chestnuts are consumed fresh, roasted or boiled in the pot, or allowed to dry to get the ‘mosciarelle’ from which we get the chestnut flour.

Under the name ‘Brown Monti Cimini’ this chestnut was included on the national list of traditional Italian food products.
