The chestnut is hidden inside a spikey “burr.” It’s a fragrant fruit with a hard, smooth case and a sweet almond taste. “Marron” or chestnut? In both cases, it’s the shell of a chestnut fruit. The only difference is in the casing: If the fruit is enclosed, it’s a chestnut; if not, it’s a marron. Thus, each tree bears both chestnuts and marrons in varying proportions.
