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.

Nice trees

Trees came packaged well and were the size stated. Lead time was a bit longer then expected. They came with some leaves already on the and some were half brown a crispy. I planted them right away and its been a week and they seem okay. I will give the a 5 star is they all survive.
