About the Gideon Chestnut Tree

Add protein-rich nuts to your harvest with a reliable chestnut tree!

Chestnuts are a fast-growing perennial tree that produces delicious, sweet-tasting nuts high in complex carbohydrates. These native trees are now cultivated and bred for blight resistance, allowing landowners to add a reliable source of nuts to their property.

The Gideon Chestnut tree produces medium-to-large-sized nuts that ripen mid-season. Chestnuts are typically roasted or ground into gluten-free flour. They can also be stored in the freezer for long-term storage.

This Chinese chestnut grows large and is easy to maintain once established. If you have space to spare, plant the Gideon Chestnut tree that will benefit your family and wildlife for generations!

For proper pollination, plant two seedlings or a grafted chestnut variety.
