I grow quite a few from seed. It really is not difficult.

Those do look like Chinese chestnuts, based on shape. Look up the differences on ACF website.


Thanks! Haven't put them in there yet. My biggest concern was the worms. They aren't visible in any of the ones I have bu saw worms in many of the others on the ground

Put them into the fridge as soon as you can. You might want to do a float test to make sure they are still good.

I would suggest growing them in a pot for 2 or 3 years after you get them started you will have much better success when you transplant in the field. A good size like a 3 gallon or bigger will let it grow better roots faster.

Thanks man!

I washed them off and put them in peat moss in ziplock bags and stuck in the fridge. Hope they start sprouting come February or so. Thinking about making a green house as a "spring project". We plant 5-10 fruit trees every spring on our place. It's a goal of ours every year. I've just never grown them from sprout. This will be fun. I'm actually thinking in the next year or two when we have the loggers out again doing select cuts, to have them make a clearing somewhere on the middle of our property that will get plenty of sun and plant them. With around 50 right now, if I could get 20 trees going, I'd be a happy man!

Will be pulling these out of the fridge here in a few days. Hope they have started to root. Getting excited about planting and watching them grow! When planting, what's the best to put them in.....potting soil? How often should they be watered?

I like miracle grow potting soil. Mix in a little osmacote if you want to.

One thing that cannot be stressed enough is to put a net over your pots! You will lose every one if you do not.

I wouldnt worry about water until summer. If it hasnt rained in a week and its warm I would check them, but usually spring you really do not have to worry. My chestnuts have already sent out radiacals so your should be good to go.

Keep us updated.

Hope this helps.
