We do not ship chestnut trees.
Luvall’s Monster: This American hybrid is crossed with good Chinese cultivars to make super cold-hardy seedlings that bear medium to extra large sized, Chinese-type nuts. Though they can be as much as twice as productive as Chinese chestnuts, they are pollen-sterile, so they need good pollenizers nearby. Luvall’s Monster is a hybrid chestnut, and as a hybrid it will be much more variable in terms of size and growth from. Its fruiting will be similar to the Chinese except that they may start bearing a year or two sooner. Good for zone 4b areas.
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. Smaller potted trees will have limited availability. 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.
