The Colossal Chestnut tree features a large nut with 11 to 15 nuts per pound, that has an easy peel pellicle and a very good nut flavor. The tree itself is large, and will spread out, similar to it’s parent tree in Nevada City, California, which is 70 feet tall. It needs a pollinizer, such as the Nevada Chestnut, or another Colossal Chestnut. Colossal Chestnut is cold hardy, down to -20 degrees Fahrenheit, and the nuts are ready to harvest in early to mid September.
Grows in zones: 5 - 9.
