Nut Crops

Chestnut

The chestnut is a unique nut-producing tree that may have some potential as an alternative crop for certain areas. Chestnut trees vary in growth habits, depending on the species, but generally make fairly large, spectacular trees. Four common species of chestnut have been grown in North America. They exist as pure species, or more commonly, as hybrids of the various species, because they readily cross with one another. It is difficult, in many cases, to distinguish specific species and almost impossible to determine the parentage of the hybrids through visible identification.
