Horse Chestnut
Chui Lum Tao (CLT) Peach

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.

Chui Lum Tao Peach (CLT) is a very cold hardy peach cultivar. The taste and form of these peaches is reported to be similar to the other cold hardy peach varieties. The root system on this variety is known to be more vigorous than most peaches.

This variety is resistant to powdery mildew, but has a shorter window to accept successful budding and chipping. Because it is relatively uniform in height and stem diameter when young, it is easy to work with in orchard production.

This is a favourite choice for those in the BC interior and in Southern Ontario. Many find this rootstock to be both hardy and higher yielding than others. The Chui Lum Tao Peach is considered to be true to seed.
