Chestnut Trees

Chinese chestnuts are a favorite nut tree to plant in the United States, because of the early production of nuts and the cold hardiness of the chestnut plant. The Chinese chestnut is an excellent flavored chestnut, but the native American chestnut tree produces the sweetest flavored chestnut, and both the Chinese chestnut and the American Chestnuts have a cold hardiness that makes it possible to grow both nut cultivars in almost every State.

Planting an American Chestnut Tree
The green chestnut burr is sticky and prevents wildlife from taking the chestnut crop off the tree before it is ripe. The Colossal Chesnut can grow as large as a Lemon and is delicious to eat when roasted and peeled. Great intrest has developed in replanting forests of the native American Chestnut tree. Intercrossing American Chestnuts with other foreign chestnut species has created promising seedlings that are resistant to the chestnut blight that devastated early American native chestnut trees.
