Chinese Chestnut (Castanea mollissima); 25 bare root seedlings
Chinese chestnuts have NOT produced reliably on the home farm in SW Wisconsin, since they tend to freeze back during our brief extreme cold-snaps. They do not appear to be as aggressive as the hybrids in low-maintenance, certified organic conditions. The only surviving Chinese chestnuts producing seed in our breeding plots (the toughies!) are seedlings from Skookum, Layeroka and Skioka varieties.
Grown from open-pollinated seed collected from superior mother trees, selected for nut size and cold hardiness.
Resistant to chestnut blight. Worth experimenting with in zone 4.
SOLD IN BUNDLES OF 25 SEEDLINGS.
QUANTITY OF 1 = 25 SEEDLINGS, 2 = 50 SEEDLINGS, 4 = 100 SEEDLINGS AND SO ON.
ADDITIONAL BULK DISCOUNTS INCLUDED FOR QUANTITIES 4+.
