Regis Montis chestnut trees are a new chestnut cultivar from our own propagation program. The Latin name translates to King of the Mountains. It is the king because of how fast it grows and how upright the tree is. Like Regina Montis the quality of chestnuts it produces is just about as good as it gets in hybrid trees.

The original seedling was planted in 2006 in our orchard of several hundred trees. By the fall of 2008 it produced its first chestnuts and they were so good we never sold any of these nuts, we only shared them with close friends and family. The following year it produced so many nuts that our friends thought we were being to generous with the gifts of fresh chestnuts. The nut is medium sized (between 1.125 and 1.5 inches across) and falls free of the burr. In the year of 2010 at the age of 5 years old it had reached a height of 21 feet with height being favored over width. The King of the Mountains chestnut is our easiest to peal and the nuts develop a wonderful sweetness. Now you know why we gave this chestnut cultivar the name Regis Montis, it really is a king of chestnut quality. (Availability - Jan to April 2017)
