Our Chinese Chestnut trees should be planted in pairs or groups to ensure better cross pollination. Expect nut crops in mid/late September through October in our area. A prickly 2–3½" seed husk encloses 1-4 nuts, which are quite large, meaty, crisp and sweet, although some believe them to be a little less sweet than olden American chestnuts.
Begins to bear nuts in 4–5 years if grown from seed. Mature trees provide a dense shade with a handsome, spreading canopy, and the wood is much prized for it's durability and resistance to rot..

Does well in hot, dry climates and grows in a magnificently handsome rounded shape.
