Abundant Hickory Nuts

Selected for its prolific abundance of delicious large hickory nuts. Thought to be a hybrid of shagbark and shellbark hickory this is my most productive hickory at my farm. The squirrels agree as well making collection a timely process. Trees like this are impossible to find as few people can correctly identify the plants unless you grow them out and wait 30 years to see what develops. Luckily I made this planting based on what other nut growers had experienced before me.

Abundant Shellbark Hickory
Northern American Persimmon

Selected for early ripening and hardiness this form of persimmon is one of the most northern. Excellent seed strain for short season areas as well as cultivar selection.
