Product Overview

Castanea Mollissima - A Chinese Chestnut For The Northeast

Why Chinese Chestnut?

Chinese Chestnut belongs to the Fagaceae family and is a deciduous tree that produces edible nuts in September and October. It is a medium-sized tree that grows up to 25 feet at maturity. Although famous for its low-fat nuts, the tree is exotic and beautiful and an ideal addition to your backyard.

 

Chinese chestnuts are an ideal source of starch. People usually score, roast, and boil the nuts to remove the leathery outer shell and gain the pale golden meat inside. The nut is delicious and used to make pancakes, poultry stuffing, and bread.

 

The Chinese chestnut tree prefers well-drained loamy soil that is slightly acidic. Ensure the growing site has good circulation; otherwise, the root system and buds will damage and reduce the crop.

 

Chinese chestnuts are particularly attractive because they have blight-resistant varieties available.

 

Pollination: Should be planted in pairs or groups to ensure pollination

    Chinese Chestnut Seedlings

    The trees arrived healthy with good root systems. They were not close to the tall end of the 1-3 ft. range, but they were nice enough. The addition of the 2 free Red Osier Dogwoods was much appreciated. Thank you.

    I order 8 of these, six are growing that is pretty normal for me. They are not supposed to grow here in Texas but I thought I would give them a try.

    I received my plants. They appear to be dormant and healthy at this point. They arrived exactly as I expected they would. Happy with the customer service and quick responses. Am excited to be planting them soon.
