Hong Kong

‘Hong Kong’ (C. mollissima) is considered the best seedling selection from a seedlot from Hong Kong. The tree is pollen-fertile and drops its nuts during the early to mid-season. The nuts peel well, and the nut flavor is very good, with a nice sweetness. Grafted trees at the University of Missouri grew vigorously and had fair productivity without blight. Nuts from the ramets at the UMCA are consistently medium to large in size (Anagnostakis and Nave, 2015; Nave, 2017).
