Chestnuts - AmericanXX
Native American chestnuts were once abundant in North America but have been almost entirely wiped out by chestnut blight. Chinese chestnuts are blight resistant so they have been cross-bred with American varieties to produce a tree that is resistant to blight and is very winter hardy.( our mother trees are now 35 yrs old and produce nuts yearly...even after -35 C winters) Our chestnut crosses( 90% American + 10% Chinese) produce large sweet nuts that are much tastier than those stale imported chestnuts that frequent the Canadian supermarkets. Canada has ZERO commercial chestnut production although Ontario is starting to plant a few trees for test purposes.
We sell 2-3 yr old seedling trees of our best producing mother trees. These approx 75 cm seedlings start producing chestnuts in about 3 yrs from transplanting
PLANT 2 or more trees for cross-POLLINATION and better chestnut production
