The Fall Draw Chinese Chestnut tree produces an abundant crop of sweet chestnuts every year. It is an excellent early producer (you will see chestnuts on your trees between 2-4 years). These trees produce a crop which is highly preferred by whitetail deer and very edible for human consumption as well. Its attractability mixed with its late drop (through October) make it the perfect hunting tree.

Fall Draw Chinese Chestnut is a fast growing deer chestnut tree reaching heights of 40’ to 60’. It produces an abundant crop of sweet chestnuts every year without fail. They bloom well after the chance of frost. These Fall Draw Chinese Chestnuts have excellent resistance to blight. I have been growing from the same group of Chinese chestnuts for years.
The earliest I have ever seen the parent trees start dropping is October 8th. The latest has been October 23rd. Most chestnuts have finished dropping by the time October rolls. This reason is why they are called Fall Draw and why they give you an advantage during hunting season! The trees grown from these parent trees will each be genetically different with various drop times from each individual tree from the last week in September through the last weeks in October.
It is exceptionally hard to gather nuts from these trees because they are highly desired by deer. I gather every evening because there won’t be any left on the ground come morning and there is always an amazing amount of deer under this group of trees when they are dropping. These Fall Draw Chinese chestnut trees are planted and thriving as far North as Western NY in hardiness Zone 5 on my properties.
Plant at least two chestnut trees in close proximity for pollination. Fall Draw Chinese Chestnut trees must be planted with a minimum of 35′ spacing. They can grow in a wide variety of soil types, but I recommend avoiding wet or heavy clay soil. These trees are tolerant to low pH as well as low fertility. Requires at least 6 hours of full sun.
Trees can be picked up typically the 1st week in April as weather allows in both our areas. Please Call or message me to make an appointment to pick your trees up. I will generally begin shipping to Hardiness zone 6 (southern states) and further south the 1st week in April as the weather allows me to. For Hardiness zones 5 and colder, I will generally ship the 2nd to 3rd week in April as your weather allows.
