I picked up about a dozen Allegheny Chinkapin seeds the other day and am going to plant next spring. I have some isolated American Chestunt trees that were planted in pairs but one died off. Will the AC naturally pollinate an American Chestnut? I could not find this info anywhere online. I did read that the AC will naturally pollinate a Chinese Chestnut so if this is true I would assume they could not pollinate an American naturally because of flowering time. My Chinese will not pollinate my Americans because the flowering times are separated by a couple weeks. If I hand pollinate an American from an Allegheny Chinkapin, are the nuts larger on the AC? Smaller on the American? I’m curious how this works. Maybe someone who has a Allegheny/Chinese hybrid could explain how this works.
