About the Peach Chestnut Tree

A consistent producer of high-quality chestnuts!

Peach is a Chinese chestnut that gets its name from the fuzz that grows on the outer shells of each nut. This tree produces medium-to-large-sized nuts that ripen mid-season. These chestnuts are easy to peel. Roasted or ground into gluten-free flour, these nuts are great for baking. They can also be stored in the freezer for long-term storage.

Chestnuts are a fast-growing perennial tree that produces a delicious, sweet-tasting nut high in complex carbohydrates. The Peach Chestnut tree was bred to be blight-resistant, making maintenance a breeze. Quick to start bearing, the Peach Chestnut tree typically starts producing in just 3-5 years!

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