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. Very limited supply. Hardy to zone 5b.
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.
