These chestnut seedlings are grown from seed that is collected from an orchard block planted with a diversity of Castanea genetics. We offer details about the mother trees of the seedlings but the fathers are unkown. The pollen could be from European, Chinese, Japanese or hybrid chestnut genetics and therefore the genetics of the seedlings will likely be some sort of hybrid. The orchard block is planted with seed from a variety of sources including from Gellatly's, Marlborough Street in Victoria, BC and modern ExJ varieties. There is minimal, if any, American chestnut genetics in this orchard block. This collection is for the curious and those who believe in the power of diversity and the resilience that it provides!
