“Chinese chestnut, Castanea mollissima, is the best, most disease resistant chestnut for home gardens. Japanese, C. crenata, and European, C. sativa, chestnuts can sometimes be grown in the west where chestnut blight is less problematic and where winter temperatures are more mild. But east of the Rockies the Chinese chestnut is the best choice.” Excerpted from “What’s Wrong With My Fruit Garden?” by David Deardorff and Kathryn Wadsworth. Timber Press, December, 2013.
