How to store walnuts

The walnut harvest season lasts until mid-October. This is a healthy product that is rich in vitamins and minerals that stimulate the brain, and improve memory and concentration.

If you follow the rules for storing nuts, you can enjoy them until spring, as they will retain their taste and beneficial properties. OBOZREVATEL has found effective tips to help you with this.

Fats can oxidize in walnuts, causing them to lose their texture and flavor, becoming soft and bitter.

Avoid light and moisture

Moisture and ultraviolet rays hurt nuts. Therefore, it is better to store them in opaque containers, bags, or sacks. All containers must be airtight to prevent foreign odors from entering.

Glass jars can also be used. But they should be sterilized and ensured they are dry. Fill the jar to the brim to avoid air inside; this will help prevent oxidation of the nuts. Be sure to seal the jar with a lid so that there are no gaps through which moisture can enter.


This product is best stored in a cool and dry place. The optimum temperature is between 0°C and 4°C. This can be a refrigerator or basement if it is free of mold and mildew.

Shelf life

If all the rules are followed, walnuts can be stored for up to 12 months. But it is better to consume them within 6 months while they are fresh.

If you detect an unpleasant odor and taste, and the texture has become soft, it means they have spoiled and should be discarded. Also, pay attention to the appearance; dark spots or even mold may appear.
