Large Acorn with Good Production-No Mildew-Seedlings show good vigor.
Well known hybrid chestnut oak that dates back to 1830. Several large trees exist in the U.S. and Europe. Early ripening acorns are quickly consumed by deer. We have to pick them from the tree before they hit the ground. One of the earliest acorns to ripen here at our farm that tend to drop over a 4-6 week period. Seedlings from the group are like burenglish showing fast growth, straight growth habit and dominant central leader. This hybrid oak has great range of adaptibility in soil and climate and is very tolerant of heat and drought. One of the most reliable acorn producers in our planting. We have now established a second generation of this cross selecting for larger leaves and vigorous growth rate. We believe our hybrid to be a cross with white, english and chestnut oak.
