Horse Chestnut
Fall Red Apple

Horse Chestnut is a medium sized deciduous tree that is native to Greece but has been grown in North America for hundreds of years. It produces large nuts.

A top CO2 absorbing species. Experts think this tree may help climate change more than others.

The Fall Red Apple produces large ruby red apples with white flesh that are crisp and sweet. This delicious fruit is great for fresh eating or baking, with a good storage life. Its showy clusters of white flowers in spring add fragrance and beauty to your garden or yard.

Like most apples, the Fall Red apple will produce fruit on its own, but can benefit from another variety of apple (such as Prairie Sensation Apple) for cross pollination. It is a disease resistant alternative to the McIntosh Apple.
