Native Tree is Blight Resistant with HUGE Crops

Chestnut 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.
