We do not ship chestnut trees.
These seedlings have Peach for a mother tree and are open pollinated. Peach is one of Greg Millers’s (president of the Chestnut Growers of America and founder of Empire Chestnuts) very best selections. It is a reliable bearer of extra-large nuts. This is one of the few varieties that never over-bears. The nuts are fuzzy like a peach, thus the name.
These potted trees are grown from seed each Spring. They are available to leave the nursery when they have developed a good root system. The trees growing in smaller pots will be ready sooner than the the trees growing in larger pots. The smaller potted trees will have smaller root systems and tops but will be available a month before the larger sized pots. They are also cheaper for us to grow, thus the lower price. The larger potted trees will have a more robust root system and larger tops. Smaller potted trees will have limited availability. The deadline for picking up orders of small potted trees is June 30. The deadline picking up orders for medium potted trees is August 31.
