Cultivar discussion:
The Marrone di Susa is a consistant producer of excellent chestnuts. Nut size is medium to large. Nuts fall in the burr late season. The nuts are very easy to peel. Some locals say this is our best tasting chestnut. The tree has a spreading growth form. Medium production level. Originally from Italy. One of the best storing chestnuts.
