Water chestnuts are a type of nut that grows in the water, and is usually sold dried. They’re often found in Asian cuisine, but they can also be used in salads, stews, stir-fry dishes and other recipes. Water chestnuts are available year-round in most U.S. markets.

Where Do Water Chestnuts Grow?

Water chestnuts are native to China and Southeast Asia. They grow underwater in shallow ponds or lakes, where they have a long, white root that resembles a large potato with an edible tip. The plant sends up shoots above water once it reaches maturity and produces small flowers on its stems. The flowers turn into fruit that contains several seeds inside them; these seeds eventually become water chestnut plants themselves when they fall into the water below them and germinate there.

How Are Water Chestnuts Harvested?

Water chestnuts are harvested by hand every two weeks during their growing season from March through November each year; this allows them to continue growing until they reach maturity in December or January (depending on where they’re grown). The plants must be harvested before they flower because this causes them to stop producing new shoots altogether; once harvested, the shoots will remain fresh for about six months if properly stored.
