Chestnut Di Coppi Marrone Seedling

An elegantly bell-shaped tree with easy-to-peel nuts that fall easily from the burr. Harvest nuts after they fall to the ground during Autumn. Plant two or more varieties to ensure optimal pollination and you will be rewarded with a first harvest after about four years. The cooked flesh offers a sweet nutty flavour, is low in fat and high in fibre. Score the brown shinny skin with a knife before roasting these culinary delights in an open fire. The aroma will have you hooked even before you taste the first mouthful. Drought- tolerant once established although seasonal watering will ensure full nuts. Resents highly alkaline soil.

How to grow

Chestnuts are a fast growing and long lived tree, grown in areas that provide a hot Summer and cold Winter. They prefer a higher altitude, around 800 m above sea level with well drained soil to minimize root rot and will not tolerate alkaline soil. Plant two or more varieties to ensure well filled nut burrs. Seedlings may begin to produce fruit after 4 years. Enrich soil prior to planting with organic matter and all purpose slow release fertiliser. Although Chestnuts are drought tolerant once established, benefit from seasonal watering to ensure good nut size.
