Chestnuts

Post  Rackaybre on 11/8/2011, 10:54 pm

G'day, I had some chestnuts to roast that were forgotten and sprouted. I planted them in a tub and many of them have sent up shoots. My question is: Should I plant them? How tall do they grow? How long before they produce the chestnuts? I live in Victoria Australia where we have extreme temperatures 40C on occasion in summer and 0C some nights in winter. How would they do?
Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks

Do you know what type of Chestnut it is? American? Japanese?
It is a tree so will get quite large. And will prob take several yrs to produce seeds, but I would plant them. It takes at least 2 trees for proper pollination. Trees grown outside of the Northeastern United States are resistant to blight that killed them in the US many yrs. ago. Here is a link:

I am not sure what type it is. I didn't know there were different kinds. I am in Australia so I guess they could have come from anywhere.

I think I'd plant them and see what happens. Then you'd have plenty of chestnuts.
