again You, and you Americans are knowing much more about Castanea.
I am sure the biggest Castanea breeding countries are the USA and Japan.
In Europe we have many varieties, but in small Japan they have more than
Most our varieties are C. sativa, but more and more we have also C.
crenata x sativa crosses.
C. dentata is not used because of the known problems.
But up to my knowledge all your very interesting Castaneas are not used
Just we have some in botanical gardens.
Anyhow more and more we have also the Chestnut blight at Europe, but our
a little bit more resistant.
In Eurpe this "Ecker 1" is really a good choice for a smaller tree. With
cutting we can keep a
Castanea at the size of an medium Apple tree.
Do you have nice fruiting Castanea with small growth at the USA? Zone 6?
