    The sweet-tasting nuts of the Chinese chestnut are often roasted for holiday eating and have been made famous in turkey stuffing recipes across the country. But this is more than a nut tree. The shade of its spreading canopy is dense, providing relief in the hot, dry climates the Chinese chestnut does well in.

    • Produces a sweet-flavored nut
    • Provides excellent spreading canopy
    • Plant two trees to ensure pollination
    • Will be delivered at height of 2'–3'
