Horse Chestnut
Carpathian English Walnut

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.

Carpathian English Walnut is a great shade tree or a fantastic addition to a food garden. The taste is described as having a full flavour with a hint of sweetness and butterscotch. They are great for fresh eating, cooking, and baking. Thin shelled nuts split right down the center, making them easy to crack. Harvest ranges from late September to early October.

It is known for being highly productive and more cold hardy than other English Walnut varieties.
Carpathian English Walnut is considered to be self pollinating but planting with a second variety will result in greater yields. It can be cross pollinated with Black Walnut and others.
