Default Nuts in Shell- How Long Do They Keep?

I was wondering if anyone knew how long nuts will keep, still in the shell, stored in optimal conditions?

I know peanuts are about two years. The oil in them will start to get rancid. That really isn't optimal storage though as they were just in a bag stored in the closet. Hope that helps a bit

Two years is a good estimate. The Indians without modern resources could get a year.

Are there certain nuts that would keep better/longer than others?

I know some have more oil content, and certain shells are more porous than others, but would there be some sort of chemical make up that prevents spoilage in any particular nuts?

Put them in an air tight container in the freezer and they will last over a year. You can even refreeze them if you need to. Fridge is about 6 months and at room temperature is about 3 months.

Not sure if one kind keeps better than another.

Have you ever wondered why the early settlers liked the pecan tree? Some of the old homesteads in the southern part of the USA had rows and rows of pecan trees. If the people had the land, they might plant a few acres of pecans.

Pecans fall from the tree around October and will last for months, maybe a year?? Not sure on the year though. Once the trees started producing pecans, the settlers had a supply of food that would last them through the winter.
