Botanical Name Castanea pumila
Description A small multi-stemmed tree which matures to 25'H x 20'W. Glossy, dark green summer foliage and gorgeous golden fall foliage, this plant does well in dry areas in full sun or partial shade where it will usually produce a good crop of delicious native nuts that mature mid September. Close relative of the American Chestnut but, the Chinquapin is more blight resistant. You have to beat the wildlife to this great nut.
