About Chinese Chestnut:

Chinese Chestnut…….the tank of Chestnut trees. Very cold hardy and blight resistant! These trees are next to a very old and rare American chestnut and most likely some of the seedlings have hybridized with this American chestnut rarity.  Very sweet chestnuts that are completely edible by humans and highly prized by wildlife. Hard to believe but these nuts are preffered by Whitetails more than our sweet White Oak acorns.
