Chestnut Seeds - Chinese Chestnut

**Orders containing large seeds are not eligible for lettermail shipping.**

(Castanea mollissima) Zones 4 - 8. Deciduous nut tree.

Chinese Chestnut is such a rewarding tree to grow. This quick growing, disease resistant chestnut can start producing after only 3 years and the nuts are delicious! Enjoy them roasted, in soup or grind them into a paste and make a cake for the most decadent baking experience you will ever have!

Chinese Chestnut thrives in loamy, well draining soils. They require full Sun and a pollinator in order to producer fruit, so plant more than one. Trees get big and can grow to 60 ft.

Something to note, when it comes to any chestnut tree, is that their spiky shells will need to be raked up every year, especially if you enjoy going barefoot.
