Maraval Chestnut

Chestnut

Description: Maraval is a mid-season hybrid variety. Upright in habit with moderate vigour. Produces shiny, dark mahogany-red nuts in the early autumn. The tree itself is very handsome with glossy serrated foliage that are golden in the autumn. An eating chestnut but also excellent for cooking.

Chestnut Growing Tips: Happier planted on lighter soils, acid to neutral is best, avoid chalk if possible. They dislike waterlogged soils, which can encourage 'ink disease' symtoms. Make sure you harvest the nuts daily to avoid the attention of hungry vermin!
