I have chingapin nuts

Guy I know has the only tree he knows of on his farm and I got some nuts.

Now they will likely die before producing, but I'm willing to try.
(He says the tree is perhaps 40 years old, so it's grown to maturity since the blight.)

I'm willing to send some seeds to the first six people who post on this thread that they are willing to try to grow them into trees.


Post and PM me your address and I'll mail you a handful at my cost next week.

Ah, the old Quercus muehlenbergii...

https://www.arborday.org/trees/treeG...cfm?itemID=875

I see it spelled Chinkapin and Chinquapin.

Thanks for the offer.
I would take you up on it but no more room in the yard.
I am growing Burr oak and Northern catalpa.

I'm your huckleberry!

We have a peach tree damaged in a storm that needs cut down and a big maple in front of the house I will sadly have to cut down as we plan to build on where it sits. These sound like cool trees for replacements.

No apology needed here and I hope you get some good seedlings going!

Enjoy the cider.

I'm surprised nobody but me is apparently interested in these ???

I may not live long enough to see it fully mature, but it sounds like an interesting tree(s) to have on the farm.

We're all too old to plant nut trees.

Why not? I'll line 'em out in the garden about 4" deep and see what we get in the spring.

Lots of luck propagating black walnut. Got dozens 40-50 ft tall and over a foot in diameter 4' off the ground.

Started with white and red oak, and shagbark hickory more recently. Have lots of young 'uns.

Heavy hickory nuts this year ~ I've picked up 4 five gal buckets full from various places.

Thanks, Nomad!

I disagree.

I'm much younger than my understanding of the average, but my goal is to still be planting fruit and nut trees the year I die.
(since we don't know when.... That means every year.)

I put in ~ 80 trees this year, but I'm benefiting (picking) from people who planted trees before me.

I know people who 'inherited' the fruits of others.

I got to pick 5 Apple trees from a guys place, he got it with the Apple trees around the shop.... (Previous owner passed away)


I want to leave that to someone one day.

Perhaps many someone's.


Consider doing something to make what you leave behind.... Better.
(Not necessarily with these nuts, but something.)

5 more to go.
