‘Carr’ (C. mollissima) is a seedling that originated from a seedlot in Tientsin, China. The USDA (Beltsville, MD) sent the seed to R.D. Carr of Magnolia, NC, in 1915. ‘Carr’ was first grafted in 1932 by H.F. Stoke of Roanoke, VA, and was commercially introduced in 1935. Unfortunately, the cultivar is extremely difficult to graft and, despite wide distribution, only a few trees are still known to exist (Seligmann, 1994). The tree has a very upright growth pattern. It has small to medium nuts (10–12 g) with excellent flavor, although they are slightly different from the average C. mollissima nut (Nave, 1998).
