Chinese Chestnut

Delicious Nuts and Beautiful Fall Color

The Chinese Chestnut is currently planted as a replacement for the American Chestnut, which was obliterated by blight in the 1900s. Most store-shelf chestnuts usually come from Spain, but the Spanish Chestnut tree is not at all cold-hardy and can be vulnerable to blight as well.

The Chinese Chestnut serves both as an ornamental dark-green shade tree and as a less-risky nut producer, providing its caretaker with pounds of sweet chestnuts to roast, puree, boil and even make gluten-free flour.

This all-purpose deciduous tree is blight-resistant and prefers moist, acidic, well-drained soils in full sun, but can manage in dry soils of varying pH; hot, arid climates are OK as well.

A good all-around choice for a yard shade tree, the Chinese Chestnut will bring yellow and gold color to your autumn landscape and is amazing when planted near Autumn Purple Ash.

* Great Shade Tree
