Native Eastern seedlings  Hazelnut

(Corylus americana) -Full sun to shade–  edible ornamental, 6-8′ tall with equal spread, plant two for pollination

A lovely landscape accent plant or hedge that also bears prolific crops of nuts. Since these are wild seedlings, the nuts are small compared to the improved filberts and the shells thicker. Nuts about the size of a pea when shelled out but very tasty and sweet!  Plants are a little slow to get going but really take off after their second year in the ground. Shrubby growth gets 6-8’ tall with equal spread.  Fall foliage is stunning with colors all over the spectrum.  Showy male catkins in the winter and spring. Immune to Eastern Filbert Blight. Plant two for pollination. Can take shade to full sun. Space 4-8’ apart.

(Improved variety) seedling Chinese Chestnut

(Castanea mollisima) -Full to Part Sun–  Spreading growth, height 30-50′, plant two for pollination

Seedlings from improved varieties.  These beautiful spreading trees produce loads of large nuts at a younger age than most nut trees.  Leaves glossy green.  Beware the husks which are incredibly spiny (like a sea urchin), use gloves to get out any nuts that don’t drop free.  But slice a cross in the hull, roast over a fire, peel and dip in melted butter—you’ll have a treat that will warm you up quick on cool fall/winter evenings!  Unique for their starchiness amongst nuts—a tree-based carbohydrate source.  Immune to chestnut blight.  Prefers acidic soils—never put lime around a chestnut tree!  Plant two for pollination.  Full to part sun; Zone 4-8.  Height 30-50’

Eastern Star Female Ginkgo

(Ginkgo biloba) -Full Sun–  Full size on Seedling Rootstock, Up to 30′ tall, needs male to pollinate

Improved nut producing variety.  Slow growing up to 30′ tall.  Zones 5-8.

Quart pots $16, Gallon* pots $24, 2-Gallon* pots $36

,   

Commonly known as a lovely landscape tree. Grafted males are what you typically see planted for ornamental purposes, but the females actually have a tasty and nutritious nut.  The reason landscapers only plant the males is that the female’s seed has an outer covering (the “fruit”) that smells terrible and is a skin irritant.  But when cleaned and roasted the seeds are easy to crack and taste great.  You need a male to pollinate the female trees if you want nuts.
