      Castanea dentata

      USDA Prohibits shipping chestnuts to Arizona.

      While most chestnut trees found in the Northwest are hybrids with European and Japanese ancestry, there are some American chestnuts as well and these represent the largest specimens in the world that are left of this species. The American chestnut was virtually obliterated back East in its native range by the chestnut blight.

      Our seedlings are grown from pure stands in Washington known to be blight free. The nuts are small, early ripening, light brown and very sweet. They have a fine flavor and peel quite easily. These make majestic timber trees, the largest of all chestnuts. They are not blight resistant, so they should not be planted where blight has been a problem in the past. Plant 2 or more for reliable pollinization.

      Grow Height: 60' (Standard)

      Sun: Full Sun

      Ripening Time: September - October

      Pollination: Needs a Pollinizer
