Then they are false advertising if that is the case. You may very well be right though.

Dont get me wrong, they crossed with the American. A long time ago. The Dunstan tree is an orchard tree, with large mast. American chestnuts are a fraction of the size of the Dunstan and taste a lot better. The only resemblance to the American is that some have a upright phenotype.

I wonder how it is they lay claim that Dunstan's are 15/16 American?

The 15/16th was produced from the TACF (american chestnut foundation). You should look into that organization, they are good, and you can get pure American chestnuts to plant! Great organization.

I feel like I have been swindled by the Dunstan.

Yep. South nashville. I heard they are $40.00 this year and smaller than in years past. I see you are in NC so this may not help but. He does ship.

I found this guy. He has quite a few 3yr trees and 1 yr old trees. The one I bought is about 1 inch caliper and about 8-9 ft. It had chestnuts on it last year. They are rootmaker trees, look really good. He also has persimmons.

He is in Bethpage. Here is his website. He had quite a few 3yr and 1yr old chestnuts.

Call him, I am not sure if he has the chestnuts on the site yet.

I bought sixteen chestnuts from him today and also some persimmon and pecans. Very nice guy and seemed to be very knowledgable.
