Dear customers, our e-shop is now closed.
out of stock Chinese Chestnut (Castanea mollissima) one year old seedling

It is used as a rootstock for grafting the cultural chestnut varieties. Chinese chestnut is the primary genetic source of resistance to the parasitic fungus Cryphonectria parasitica (before Endothia parasitica), which causes chestnut blight. If the tree is attacked, a defensive mechanism is triggered and therefore the fungus does not cause death.

Origin: wild chestnut species from China (not C. mollissima variety), the best for produce resistant chestnut saplings
Resistance: of all the chestnut species, it has the strongest resistance to chestnut blight
Leaves: top and the bottom leaves side of original wild C. mollissima is covered with small trichomes (from which is derived second scientific name "mollissima"). That is mean leaves surface is matt, not shiny as some C. mollisima varieties, because our seedlings has genuine C. mollissima genome without influence of C. crenata genome.
