Details and description from the Realtree Nursery, Chestnut Hill Outdoors - Dunstan Chestnuts are the best and most widely planted chestnut varieties in America - they combine the excellent nut quality and tree form of the American Chestnut with the blight resistance of Chinese Chestnut. There has never been an instance of Dunstan Chestnuts dying from the blight, and they have been grown successfully from Maine and New York, west to Illinois and Wisconsin, and south to east Texas and Florida.
Dunstan Chestnuts are the best tree for deer and wildlife. They produce heavy annual crops (never skipping a year like oaks) of very large, sweet tasting (no tannin) nuts that average 20-35/lb, and can produce 10-20 lbs/tree after 10 years, and as much as 40 lbs/tree at maturity. Trees begin to bear in only 2-4 years. They are easy to grow and thrive in a variety of locations. Plant at least 2 trees for pollination, but production is better with increased quantities planted together.
Height: 60-80', Spread: 30-40', Flowers: Showy catkins, Pollination: Need a minimum of 2 trees. Bloom season: May, Bears: Sep-Oct, Light requirements: Full sun, Soil type: Well-drained pH 5.5-7.0. Pruning: Central leader. Maintenance: Easy. Hardiness Zone: 4-9
