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.

$6.00/tree 

QUANTITY OF 1 = 25 SEEDLINGS, 2 = 50 SEEDLINGS, 4 = 100 SEEDLINGS AND SO ON.

ADDITIONAL BULK DISCOUNTS INCLUDED FOR QUANTITIES 4+.
