Castanea mollissima

The Chinese Chestnut is native to China and Korea, and unlike its American relative, it is resistant to chestnut blight. It is a big tree, with a dense, spreading canopy. The nut is large and meaty, and is perfect for roasting. The tree has a similar place in the canopy as Pecan trees.
