Why plant Peach Chinese Chestnut Treeling?
Slow growing, blight-resistant Chinese chestnut selection that matures mid-season. Peach Chestnut trees are eye-catching and stand out all on their own! Fragrant, creamy white blooms cover the tree in late spring, and in autumn, as the golden yellow leaves fall, so do the chestnuts! Ready for you to catch and snack on as you take a seat right under this handsome tree canopy.
Our chestnuts are not GMO, Genetically Modified Organisms, which are created in a laboratory.
In the early days of the United States, millions of American Chestnut Trees grew across the land, from Michigan to Maine and south to Mississippi and northwestern Florida. The largest specimens were over 100 feet tall and had trunks 12 feet thick. The durable wood supplied people with the material to make furniture, railway ties, and utility poles. Then, in 1904, a deadly Chestnut blight from China appeared at the Bronx Zoo. By the time Nat King Cole was singing about roasting chestnuts in 1946, most of the country’s Chestnut Trees had fallen victim. We offer seedlings from mature, surviving Chestnut Trees in northwestern Illinois in an effort to help get this glorious species reestablished!
How to use Peach Chinese Chestnut Treeling in the landscape?
Peach Chestnut throws a curveball into the traditional viewpoint of chestnuts, almost as sweet as a peach and fuzzy to boot. This reliable producer grows chestnuts that are fuzzy on the outside and extra-large on the inside, sort of like mini peaches. The benefit to growing Peach? This variety of chestnuts will not over-bear nuts, meaning that you will have just the right amount of chestnuts to enjoy during harvest time!
Hardiness Zone: 4-8
How To Plant Peach Chinese Chestnut Treeling
Peach Chestnut appreciates good, rich, moist, well-drained soil and plenty of sunshine. Provide regular irrigation. Chestnuts are encased in prickly, sea urchin–like pods, so you’ll want to keep this tree away from patios, pools, sidewalks, and other places where bare feet may wander. In rural areas, semi-wild spaces are ideal, as local wildlife like turkeys, jays, and grouse will love to share in the bounty. Before planting, check with your local extension office about the presence of Chestnut blight in your area and the feasibility of planting Chestnuts on your property.
How Does Shipping Work?
Size Small, Medium, and Large plants (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 4-7 business days.
How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
