Judea grafted chestnut tree is a one of our top producing trees in pounds per tree and producing a very beautiful looking chestnut (sorry no pictures of the nuts yet).
This is a poor pollen producing chestnut tree. Nut production is excellent of large chestnuts that fall free from the burr starting at
the age of 2-3 years. Nut fall is usually late October to early November - the last
to drop it nuts in the fall. Nut quality is excellant and holds very
well in storage.
The Judea chestnut tree a Portugal cultivar producing large sized chestnut trees with heights reaching 60 feet or more and 25-35 feet wide. The tree can be kept pruned to the size that fits your location. Winter cold/freeze damage can occur when winter temps drop below -15 F. To produce nuts you will need at least 2 trees with one of them being a different cultivar producing pollen (For Pacific coast growers these cultivars can be used as pollinators Marival, Basalta #3, Marigoule, Marsol, and Prococe Migoule).
