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.
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.
