Szego: A complex hybrid bred by Mike Nave. Vigorous, fast growing, heavy bearer of XL nuts, cold-hardy and blight resistant. Received great reviews by Mike Gold of the Agroforestry Center of Missouri at the 2016 Chestnut Growers of American annual meeting. However, burs do not open. Very limited supply. Hardy to zone 5b.

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.
