BadgerQing: Chinese X American hybrid. Very cold hardy, blight resistant, heavy bearers, of mostly medium to large nuts. Some may be pollen sterile. BadgerQing is a hybrid chestnut, and as a hybrid it will be much more variable in terms of size and growth from. Its fruiting will be similar to the Chinese except that they may start bearing a year or two sooner. This variety was developed here at Red Fern Farm. Hardy to zone 5a.
We sell these trees as potted or bare-rooted. Potted trees are grown from seed each Spring and are available to leave the nursery when they have developed a good root system. Usually potted trees may leave the nursery by late June. Bare-rooted trees are grown in a special bed for maximum root development all summer. They are dug and bundled in late November for shipping the following April. We ship these trees in April while they are still dormant.
