Regular price $29.00 $15.00 Sale

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 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.  1 year old seedlings are on average 16/30" tall currently.  When mature at 25 years they are about 25 to 30 feet tall and 25 feet wide, with a round form as shown.

Shipped bare root this spring.  You need two trees for pollination. Cannot ship to the west coast or where chestnut gall wasps quarantines exist. We do not have chestnut gall wasps in our area.
