Chestnut Trees

Home/Chestnut Trees

Chestnut trees yield nuts which are nutritionally very similar to potatoes and cereals, high in carbohydrates, low in fats and proteins, can be roasted, baked, boiled, pureed; very good for taking out in the bush and roasting over the campfire, (the smell of cooked chestnuts is very alluring) can be dried and ground into a useful flour, easy to harvest and prepare. Chestnut trees give good quantity of meat per nut. They will bear a modest crop on their own, but Chestnuts give heavier crops with pollination from a different variety of chestnut tree.
