Sweet Chestnut (Castanea sativa) 'Marlhac'

Sweet chestnut trees have been grafted for many years in an effort to improve disease resistance and the speed of cropping and size, number and taste of the chestnuts. The French varieties lead the way. Marlhac has a complicated parentage including the Japanese chestnut, Castanea crenata. It's a vigorous branching tree, bearing delicious, handsome large nuts after 4 to 5 years - so from around 3 years for the plants we sell.

Flowers: June - July
