Chestnut seeds


I collected a bunch of chestnut seeds in early October 2021 and put them in the fridge to overwinter. So far no spouts have taken place. Is it still early, or should I pull them from the fridge and get into some warmth?
Any advice is appreciated.
I only had a few but they didn't sprout in the refrigerator either. I planted them (indoors) 3 weeks ago and most have sprouted and are growing.
Any interest in trading a few chestnuts for some Concordia Oak acorns?
Hi Tom,
Sorry, I do not have any to trade, what i have are already for myself and a few friends.
