Anyone have any of the Concordia Oaks that were purchased several years ago from MDC? We have several that are 8-9' tall now but did not produce this year. Curious if anyone has any that are producing.
I have some a friend sent me about six years ago or so. They are growing really well--about 16 feet tall now--but no acorns yet. Kinda surprised actually since the chinkapin oaks I started from acorns that same year have acorns this year.
Okay so at least I'm not the only one! LOL. I was expecting a few acorns this year but nada. None of our chinkapins planted the same year are producing either. We are getting the water wagon ready so we're trying to figure out where to concentrate our efforts. Some of the older trees will be able to withstand the drought that's coming a whole lot better than some of the others. We have Comcordias that have never received any supplemental watering and they are still alive. They're probably not as big as thy should be for how old they are but they are alive.
Have any of you guys personally harvested nuts from the rest stop? I have been researching these trees for awhile now. I read an article last night that says that all of the original 13 trees were cut down and the guy claims everything there is a hybridized version of the Concordia oak. I know that they did cut a bunch of the originals but I always thought that a few of the originals were still there. Guy claimed they were all cut in the mid 90s. I wonder if letemgro could shed more light on this.
What time of fall do Concordia's usually drop their nuts? I hope to be growing several with a handful of other oaks next spring and I've never heard if Concordia's are an early dropper or late dropper..
