Need a pollinator for the one I already have.

I'm reforesting my property. I plant as many Stark Brothers products as I can afford every year. This tree will replace a tree from one of your competitors that did not survive it's second winter. I will not be surprised to find Stark's product to be a healthier, vibrant, faster growing tree then the non-Stark trees that I already planted. Long live Stark Brothers.

I remember as a child the huge shellbark nuts, down along the creek of my grandparents farm, and have never seen them anywhere else. So I wanted to grow some of my own.

How fast does the Missouri Mammoth Hickory Nut tree grow?
Jerry T on Mar 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In good soil, in the right place, with plenty of water, they will grow very fast for nut trees. Can't give exact specifications, but they seem to grow taller and faster than we ever expected!

1 of 2 trees is FANTASTIC!
Several years ago (cannot say exactly how long) we planted 2 of these trees along the road in our front yard and their growth has been unbelievable! They have both grown incredibly fast, and now are both bearing nuts. We would liked have given them a 5 star rating BUT one of them has fantastic nuts that are beyond belief in their taste and yield, while the other one is bearing lots of nuts, but they are not well formed, and are not nearly as good as the ones on the other tree.
But they were good enough to encourage us to buy more and plant them in various place around our property. We have been amazed beyond belief at how fast these trees have grown, and the fact that only one of them didn't grow, and had to be replaced.
If you want nut trees that are hardy, fast growing, beautiful, and yield really great tasting nuts in a seemingly short amount of time, then these could be the trees for you. B U T... you need a large space for them to grow large in.
The year before last we were able to collect enough nuts to make a Hickory Nut Pie, using exactly the recipe for Pecan Pie, and it was so good that our heads almost exploded! It was beyond great. It was too good to be put into words!
But, sadly, last year the weather caused these very same trees to not bear more than a handful of nuts. It was the same for almost all the nut trees in this area, including the Black Walnuts that had been reliably bearing lots of nuts for years. We were saddened, but are looking forward to having nuts this year, and unless something totally unforeseen happens, we will have, as the Missouri Mammoth Hickories are growing like mad, and are covered in flowers.
I would guess that anyone reading the review up to this point could perceive that we would, without hesitation, recommend these trees for anyone who has the space to grow at least two, and if, like us, you have more space, to grow 20 or 30.
Thanks for reading our review. Happy Growing and Much Love from Tree Lovers in Kentucky!
