Chestnuts behind the fence

For Friday's Fences #5 it's chestnuts from Bright, in Victoria, Australia.

Had never seen a chestnut tree before this trip, though I have tasted roasted chestnuts before, and they're not especially to my liking. Thinking they're an acquired taste perhaps.

Love the spreading tree though! Guess there's a machine goes along the rows and shakes the chestnuts down when they're ready to harvest.

interesting! have never seen these trees, nor tasted roasted chestnuts, although they are, of course, part of our christmas carols. :)

I've never seen chestnut trees before, although there are some horse chestnut trees around. I wonder why the trees are all propped up?
