Chestnut NutsBy Ettore Balocchi CC BY 2.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Castanea sativa
Description

From Emerald Lake in the Dandenong region. It is a beautiful spreading tree that is almost weeping in habit. Very prolific, tends to bear heavily which greatly influences nut size. A distinctive orange-tan coloured nut without stripes. Evidence of Asian parentage.
