Chinese chestnut is desired for its hardiness, disease resistance and of course their nuts. You can eat fresh or make your own gluten free deliciously sweet flour. The nuts fall free to the ground. All you have to do is pick them up.
These are regionally proven trees to grow in the Northeast. Please see our web pages on chestnuts to learn more.
These are from locally grown and adapted Chinese chestnut trees on our farm. So, you know if they can grow at our windy elevation of USDA zones 4B/5A they will grow in yours. Try in zones 4a. Dormant trees are 10" to 20" tall when shipped. When mature at 25 years they are about 25 to 30 feet tall and 25 feet wide, with a round form as shown.
We start the trees late winter in our greenhouse and transfer to the field for further growth.
These are tasty, sweet nuts! If you ask us, they taste like a sweet pistachio.
We typically ship late-April to late-May weather dependent, dormant and bare root. Seedlings are typically 12"-24" tall. We cannot ship to the west coast states.
We will be shipping to Canada this year.
You need two trees for pollination. Cannot ship to the west coast or where chestnut gall wasp quarantines exist. We do not have chestnut gall wasps in our area.
