Acorns - Package of 25 Description

Oak Acorns

Chestnut Oak ,Quercus Montana, Acorns is a famous species of white oak group.

These plants are adapted to dry and infertile soils, although they grow well in dry, well-drained, moist soil under moderate PH. The soil types include silt, loam, clay, and well-favored by humidity for high growth patterns. This tree is different from other Oak species.

It grows on dry uplands and ridge tops, upper slopes with shallow soils giving rise to a long and sturdy tree.

It attains the height of 65 to 80 feet from medium size with strong roots to cope with unfavorable conditions and provides a shady place beneath it, unlike other Oaks that can't survive there. They rapidly grow to 60 to 70 feet in full sunlight while the same goes with spread. 

The flowers are hairy, staminate, inconspicuous, and pistillate, while male catkins are pendulous. Usually, 1 to 1.5 inches long that emerges from the bud at the time of bud break, leaf or shoot development in the spring while the leaves are wedge-shaped, rounded lobed, alternate 5 to 9 inches long and 3 to 4 ½ inches wide mostly round from the base.

The new ones bearing short stalks give rise to the blossoms. The leaves are dark yellowish-green during summers, turning orange-yellow in fall.

Chestnut Oat acorn fruits are nut oval, rounded, cup-shaped, and bright brown

 These fruits are nut oval, rounded, cup-shaped, and bright brown.

These are mild, sweet, and edible  when treated through leaching through boiling and soaking, removing tannin from them to make them viable for human consumption while being poisonous for horses, cattle, and dogs.

Likewise, raw corns are safe to consume as there is no evidence of their toxicity and are rarely eaten as natural either. The acorns are an excellent food source for wildlife and the first acorns to emerge.

Such trees grow intermediately in the shade, having no dormancy period as they germinate in fall. However, epicotyl dormancy inhibits shoot development that can easily be broken by chilling in winters.

Additionally, they are low-maintenance trees that don't require any special care. Some common uses of this tree include its scalability as a great source of timber. The bark of the this tree contains tannin in higher amounts that are used in the leather tanning industry.

The wood obtained from the trees has a high density, making it exceptional. The acorns are nutrition-rich fruits and seem a perfect diet for squirrels to feed upon. These acorns are consumed as roasted nuts after the removal of Tennant and are an excellent feed for birds. They are used as decorative in the form of vase fillers.

    !st purchase, I was not aware the acorns would be sprouted, missed that somewhere. I though they would be like this picture on the left. Doesnt matter, planted them today. I figure they will be more viable since you sprouted them. So that is good. thank you Bill Kelley, Yacolt,Wa.

    Order was fulfilled quickly; and apparent viability (placed acorns in bucket of water - "sinkers" are usually viable, whereas "floaters" generally are not) was 92%....in other words, 23 of the 25 acorns received will likely germinate. Very pleased: this is a significantly higher germination potential than amongst the acorns that we have gathered ourselves.

    My children and grandchildren think it’s pretty neat ideal . We names each acorn after our family members and guessing which acorn sprouts first.
