Why Dunstan Chestnuts?
Studies have shown that chestnuts, once the most common mast-producing hardwood in the eastern U.S., are nutritionally superior to acorns, containing approximately 40 percent carbohydrates compared to 10 percent for white oak acorns, 10 percent protein compared to only 4 percent for white oak acorns and 2 percent fat, compared to 10 percent in acorns.
They grow faster and produce fruit at a much younger age, 2 – 5 five years compared to as much as 20 years for some white oaks. They also grow bigger, potentially reaching 60-80 feet tall and becoming prolific mast producers. They lack the cyclical nature of oaks and flower later in spring, after late frosts that could cause widespread acorn failures. Last but not least, Dunstan Chestnuts are known for their proven blight resistance and superior nut quality.
