Noix et cerneaux de noix du Périgord

Cracking and Sorting

For a better product valorisation, some growers choose to crack their walnuts and to deliver walnut kernels.


The cracking and sorting steps are the followings:

  • Manual or mechanical cracking of the walnut
  • Manual husking (separation of the fruit from the shell)
  • Selection of the categories by colour
  • Delivery and quality conformity
