The American Chestnut trees can still be found growing in small clusters and sometimes the groves grow in isolated locations throughout the United States. The remaining groves of American Chestnuts evolved their genetic immunity to the disease that ravaged native trees last century. Very few people today are left that can remember when their parents gathered many bucket loads of this hardy nut that became part of the American culture. The rediscovered nuts that were planted to form our inventory from the immune remnants of the American Chestnuts hopefully will reestablish Chestnuts again.

The world's most famous chestnut tree, the American Chestnut Tree, that grew in early America was the native chestnut which settlers treasured for high quality lumber and the incomparable sweet flavor of the nuts that covered the forest floor. American Chestnuts usually grow in groups of two, but each pod could contain three or more nuts. The leaves of the American Chestnut are long, serrated, and glossy. The chestnut seedling from the American Chestnut tree is easy to sprout and to grow your own trees from the seed.

The chestnut crop of the early American Chestnut Tree almost disappeared from the earth a century ago from a blight. Many grandparents claim that the original American Chestnut, which is today almost extinct was the best nut ever, but few people today can verify this fact by tasting, because the blight that almost exterminated this native tree happened 75 years ago.

Tree Delivery April 13, 2019
Reviewer: JoEllen Lewandowski from Oxford, WI United States  
We live I Wisconsin and you never plant till May. We received our tree on April 10th and it's now the 13th with snow on the ground. We have the tree in a bucket of top soil in the basement. I don't know where you got the idea that the ground isn't frozen and is ready for planting. Hopefully the tree lives or you'll be hearing from me. Paid a lot for this tree and would hate to see it die.
