Sweet Chestnut - Castanea sativa - 2 yr saplings €5 - 3rd yr saplings €10
Castanea sativa has been cultivated for over two thousand years for its edible starchy nuts. These chestnuts were once a staple food in Europe but are enjoyed merely as a delicacy today. Historically, chestnuts were ground into flour or coarse meal. As well as the excellent nuts, the wood from the tree is valuable and often planted for coppicing. It is anticipated that the trees will be ready for the first cut in 15-20 years time. You will need to wait 25-30 yrs for the plants to set fruit form a seedling.
