TyTy Nursery will Guarantee that your Chinese Chestnut Tree will grow in USDA Zones 5-10, being one of the most cold hardy chestnuts. The Chinese Chestnut tree not only provides a fast dense shade, but also will give you a bonus of tasty nuts ripening in October that are just in time for a Thanksgiving roasting. The Chinese Chestnut tree is not self-pollinating , so that two different trees must be planted to insure a crop nut set at all. The Chinese Chestnut Tree produces the best nuts when planted in full sun and chestnuts are ideally suited to be grown in sandy, well-drained soils and are very adaptable to grow in most any growing condition. The Chinese Chestnut tree was imported into the U.S. about 100 years ago, and the quality of that chestnut at that time could not justify replacing the American Chestnut market with the Chinese Chestnut. The Chinese Chestnut tree is cold hardy, surviving temperatures of minus 29 degrees.
