Chinese chestnut trees are a medium sized tree, it may start producing nuts in the 5th year depending on soil fertility and favourable climate conditions.
Bake chestnuts on a cookie sheet at 380F for 20-25 minutes until their skins peel away. Great wildlife tree for permaculture application.
Wikipedia has a good description and information on the origins of this species.
Nuts have been stratified, plant straight out in deep pots or planted in fall in a permanent position in the garden. Nut trees have a taproot therefore be careful when transplanting. Zone 5.
