We have grown out their seeds for two years and are now offering a limited supply of 2 year old seedlings for sale. We will let you know what the mother tree cultivar was and of course we do not know who the pollen parent was.
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.
Please see our web pages on chestnuts to learn more.
Dormant trees are 15" to over 40" tall when shipped. Well rooted with well developed root ball as we root prune our trees.
When mature at 25 years they are about 25 to 30 feet tall and 25 feet wide, with a round form as shown. Some seedlings can be much taller.
Chestnuts often start producing nuts in year 4 or 5 and your tree will leaf out in year 3! Get it off to a good start and you may see nuts the following year.
