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’ . .
