Pine Nuts


The majority of pine nuts growing in North America came from a 150 year old tree planted by Charles Gibbs in Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec. The edible seeds from this pine tree are used to make pesto, added to salads, etc. Pine nuts can be difficult to transplant and require shade or a grow tube for the first few years to prevent desiccating in the hot summer sun. We recommend planting your pine nut with a shovel full of soil that comes from underneath a native pine tree to inoculate the roots. Pine nuts take 8 to 10 years to start producing, please be patient it’s well worth the wait! We sell offspring of the original "Gibbs" Korean pine nut.
