Note for Fall of 2019: Due to damage to many of our mature chestnut trees we will be buying our chestnut seed nuts from other sources this year. As of August 3rd, we reached the limits to what we can supply for the fall of 2019 and we stopped taking orders for chestnut seed nuts.
These chestnuts are collected daily from mother trees of named grafted varieties or superb seedlings each Fall. The nuts are kept at high moisture content and shipped in November in plastic bags in a small amount of growing medium. We ship using United States Postal Service flat rate boxes. Due to the danger of freezing temperatures and the tendency of chestnuts to start sprouting in January, we only ship seed nuts in November.
We are taking orders now for seed nuts collected this coming fall. For information about each variety below, please check out the chestnuts category of trees for sale.
Seeds from Grafted Mother Trees:
Gideon, Luvall’s Monster, Mossbarger, and Qing
Orders for seed nuts should usually be placed before November 1.
We will fill request in the order that orders and deposits are received. We will refund any orders we cannot fulfill.
