This item is currently only available for preorder and will be fulfilled once inventory is available or it’s the right time for that particular product. If pre-ordering more than one different product, products must be placed in different orders.

We are sold out of seeds from the 2021 crop year.  We will open the store for 2022 seeds in the fall.  FYI, these are pure Chinese chestnut or Chinese-type hybrid seed from commercial quality parents, plus I have a small quantity of Japanese chestnuts, mostly derived from Korean cultivars.  There are about 25-40 seeds per lb (less for the Japanese).  I recommend that you order one of the mixes to ensure high genetic diversity and high genetic quality.  The Empire Elite Mix has seeds from numerous good parents that are not yet producing enough seed to sell by themselves; many of these are better than the named cultivars.  Kinds available (in 2021; may be somewhat different in 2022):

  • Chinese mixed populations: Empire Elite Mix, Stehli Elite Mix, PQ F1’s
  • Chinese mothers: AU-Homestead, AU-Super, Gideon, Nanking, Peach, Perry, Qing,
  • Hybrid mothers: Ace, Hansen, Luvall’s Monster
  • Japanese (mixed population)

Seeds will be shipped in November.
