We do not ship chestnuts trees.
These seedlings have Resilient for a mother tree and are open pollinated.
Resilient: Planted in 1990, this tree has been, for many years, a consistent and profitable heavy bearer of large nuts, but without drawing particular attention to itself. That changed in 2019 when this tree was the only one out of over 1,000 bearing-age chestnuts to remain healthy and productive. It produced a normal crop of nuts following the horrible winter/spring of 2018 – 2019.
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.
