The Bouche de Betizac is a consistent producer of large chestnuts. Even when a cold growing season comes along this chestnut tree still produces nuts. Nuts fall free of the burr and fall mid season. The nuts are easy to peel. The tree has a upright growth form, spread out after 7 years. Good to very good production level. Originally from France. Stores very well usualy for a few weeks without special care. (Availability - Dec 2017)
