The Chinese Chestnut Tree is a mid-sized type that thrives in full or partial sun. Many people grow it for its nuts.

Chinese Chestnut Is Native To China

It takes its name from its native country, China. Although an Asian native species, it is hardy and well-adapted to grow in the United States. It grows in most U.S.D.A. growing zones, is deer-resistant and drought-resistant, and is not fussy about soil types.

Chinese Chestnut Thrives In Many Soil Types

The Chinese Chestnut Tree performs well in almost every kind of soil. It does not require special care other than adding fertilizer or organic matter twice a year and an inch of water each week.

Chinese Chestnut Grows 3 Feet Per Year

It grows as much as two to three feet in a single growing season, so that you will see significant growth each year. By year five, it usually produces its first batch of nuts. 

The Chinese Chestnut Tree Is An Outstanding Focal Point

It is an outstanding addition to an Asian-themed garden or as a focal point specimen. It grows approximately sixty feet high and forty feet wide.

The Chinese chestnut tree trunk is sturdy, medium brown in tone, and splits into several lovely, asymmetrical branches. The oblong leaves are yellow to golden green, eight inches long, four inches wide, and have serrated edges. The leaves turn a lovely soft hue of yellow in the fall.
