About the Sauls Oak:
A naturally occurring hybrid between Chestnut Oak and White Oak. Sweet acorns are influenced by the White Oak gene contribution in this cross. Seedlings show signs of possible English Oak in the interesting hybrid, and will only make the acorns sweeter, larger, and more reliable! The parent tree has produced acorns every year, with very heavy crops of over 500 to 1000 pounds on alternating years. Very fast growing and early (4-8 years) acorn production is possible. I have personally seen bucks get up out of their beds in the middle of the day to feast on these tasty acorns before the competition can get to them.
