I just got these from a place I have permission to hunt, so what is the best thing to do if I wanted to plant them? I was going to stick them in the freezer until this coming spring, then put them into some pots. Anyone have any expertise with this?

Thanks.

Itd be best to see the overall shape and form of the tree, the burrs, every little detail you can think of. They are difficult to tell the difference.

Just a guess from what I see maybe Chinese chestnuts. Really need to see the tree and the Burrs the Chestnuts came from. Good crop of Chinese Chestnuts around here. They are dropping and the deer are tearing them up what the squirrels aren't getting.Several Pecan trees are loaded also.

I really don't have a clue what they are. I just know the deer are tearing them up

I was thinking Chinese as well. Unfortunately, I do not have any pics of the trees. It is a place I go to in east Tn once or twice a year. Wish I had some pics.

Should I go ahead and stick them in the freezer? And put them in pots this coming spring? I want to plant about 20 of them on our place

On this counter top is the same place my wife walked in and saw me taking pics of the jawbones of the buck I killed last year to post on here. She didn't like that either \:D

DO NOT FREEZE! They will die. Put in a bag with peat moss, leave in the fridge until March or so. Here is a great thread about it. http://www.qdma.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46975

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.
