Chinese Chestnut Tree

Product Description

The Chinese Chestnut (Castanea mollissima) is blight resistant and quickly gaining popularity as the American chestnut struggles with disease. The sweet-tasting nuts are often roasted for holiday eating and have been made famous in turkey stuffing recipes across the country. But this is more than a nut tree. The shade of its spreading canopy is dense, providing relief in the hot, dry climates the Chinese chestnut does well in. We always recommend planting any fruit or nut tree in pairs or groups to ensure pollination. The Chinese Chestnut Tree will produce nuts within 4-5 years and yields a ripened nut crop mid/late September through October. A prickly 2–3½" seed husk encloses 1-4 nuts. The nuts are large, meaty, crisp, and sweet, although less sweet than American chestnuts. While the chestnuts are valuable for human consumption, they are also valuable as food for wildlife. This tree grows at a slow to medium rate, with height increases of anywhere from less than 12" to 24" per year.

These folks are great

I was a little worried after I bought my trees. I did a little more research on this nursery and was having trouble finding information. Well now after getting my trees I am happy to report, order came fast,order was packed very good. The trees were very nice size and bred out soon after planting. Now there are flower buds on all the trees and have grown about a ft so far. I do not expect chestnuts this year but I’m sure next or by the second yr I will. Nothing but good things to say about this nursery and trees they sent me

Chestnut trees much smaller than advertised

I went with this company because the description of these trees for that price was for 2 to 3 ft trees. When they arrived the largest one was 15 inches tall. I could have bought 15 inch trees for half the price of what they charged me other than that the trees looked healthy, they all had buds. I gave them three stars because the customer service was very good and quick response time. Shipping was quick. Again my only issue was the tree size
