Is it possible to get a hundred that is split 50/50? And is the free shipping anywhere in the US? Also do you have any more info on the Kohr variety? Doesn't seem to be a whole lot out there about it. Thanks

Hi Stephen.  I can split orders 50/50 with both varities, no problem.  The free shipping is anywhere within the United States.  

As for the Kohr variety, I also have not found a lot of info on it.  I know it is one of the varities grown in the Missouri State University Agroforestry department in their chestnut trials.  It has proven to be a quality tree with commercial viability.  

Happy planting! :)

Hi Michael, do you think these would ripen early enough for zone 5 Maine?  I'm planning a mixed planting site with 10 chestnuts and I think I want to go with seedlings from promising Chinese stock.  I'm thinking of planting 3 at each planting spot and thinning to the best 1 for that spot.

Hi Greg, thanks for reaching out.  I think they will.  They are hardy to your zone. I see lots of references for recommendations for planting in zone 5. I think you are on the right track by planting more densely.  These are trees from awesome genetics, but there is enough variability that you will be able to select the trees to keep that are most adapted to your site and climate.

Hey Stephen.  It won't be much longer before these trees wake up.  So I'm doing my final sales before I just plant whatever is left over.  I don't think I ever got your order.  So if you are still serious about it, nows your chance.  Thanks a bunch.  
 
if you think brussel sprouts are yummy, you should try any other food. And this tiny ad:
