Chestnuts are essentially corn that grows on trees!
With genetic origins from Minnesota, Oregon and Ontario, these are the only chestnuts to produce reliably on the home farm in SW Wisconsin. Our breeding goals within our own seed plots include high yields at an earlier age, pest and disease resistance and suitability for low-input and certified organic conditions. Most nuts are NOT as large as Chinese chestnut. Some hybrids will be susceptible to chestnut blight depending on the expression of their American genetics. Many of them will begin to flower on the fifth year!
