• Regina Montis Chestnut Grafted Tree

Regina Montis chestnut trees are a new chestnut cultivar from our own propagation program. The Latin name translates to Queen of the Mountains. It surely is a queen when it comes to the quality of chestnuts it produces and its growth vigor. Regina is one of the best pollenators because it produces a lot of pollen over an extended period from mid to late bloom period.

We started this tree as a seedling in 2006 and by the fall of 2008 it produced its first chestnuts. By 2009 it was producing a lot of medium sized (between 1.125 and 1.5 inches across) that were the best tasting in the entire orchard of several hundred trees. By 2010 it had reached a height of 18 feet and it is well balanced between height and width. Aside from just being such a great tasting chestnut it also peals easily and will get almost as sweet as candy. All of these great traits is what gives this chestnut tree its name.
