Chinese Chestnut

This bushy Chinese deciduous tree is widely grown as a substitute for the once widepread American Chestnut tree (C. dentata) that was essentially eliminated by the chestnut blight brought in from China in 1904. It produces large edible chestnuts which are shed from their spiny husks in fall. It is adaptable to a range of well-drained but fertile soils. Native to China and Korea.
