We do not ship chestnuts trees.
Hardy Hybrids: This collection of hardy seedlings was developed at Red Fern Farm. They are Chinese American hybrids with genetics originating in Minnesota. The collection includes Super BadgerQing, MossBad and GiantBadger x Type AB+. We believe these trees will be hardy to zone 4b. Some of these seedlings will be pollen sterile, meaning some will not shed pollen at maturity.
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. 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.
