‘Mossbarger’ (C. mollissima) is a 1983 selection from Kentucky. The cultivar is presumed to be pure C. mollissima, but other species might be in its genetic background. Although the tree looks predominantly like C. mollissima, ‘Mossbarger’ and its offspring have unusually thick stems and branches. Nuts have a very good flavor, raw or cooked (Nave, 1998). ‘Mossbarger’ consistently yielded large crops in the UMCA and UTC trials. Ramets are quite vigorous and precocious compared with most C. mollissima selections.
