Photo of Castanea mollissima (Chinese chestnut)

Castanea mollissima - It is a medium sized, low-branched, deciduous tree that typically grows 40’ tall with an open rounded crown. It is grown as an ornamental tree and/or for its edible nuts. It is noted for its resistance to chestnut blight. Chinese chestnut features oblong-lanceolate, coarsely toothed, dark green leaves that are soft green and pubescent beneath. Leaves turn varying shades of yellow in fall. Aromatic monoecious creamy yellowish-white flowers appear in catkins in late spring. Flowers can be quite showy, albeit for a brief period. Flowers are followed by edible chestnuts which are encased in spiny dehiscent burs.  40 to 50 feet in height. Family : Fagaceae
