Product description

Native Tree is Blight Resistant with HUGE CropsChestnut trees are true American classics. In the early 1900 s chestnut trees were the most important species of tree for food and timber in the Eastern hardwood forests. In 1904 a bark fungus was introduced from the Orient that killed 30 million acres of chestnut trees in 40 short years.In the early 1950 s a man in Ohio discovered one chestnut tree alive and thriving in the middle of grove of dead and dying trees. That tree became the parent to the Dunstan Chestnut - Castanea dentata X mollissima - the best blight resistant chestnut on the market today.Native to America - these great shade trees can grow to be 50 high. They grow from New England to Michigan - from Florida to the Pacific Northwest. Dunstan chestnuts produce very heavy crops of large - sweet nuts every year. The nuts are huge 15 to 30 nuts-lb and are never bland or bitter. They peel easily - too. They ripen in early fall - September-October -. Dunstan Chestnuts will start producing nuts in only 3 short years after planting.For a great shade tree that bears delicious edible nuts and doesn t even bat an eye at disease - you can t go wrong with The Dunstan Chestnut.* 50 ft tall* Huge - sweet edible nuts* Heavy crop production
