‘AU Buck IV’ is a new and distinct Chinese chestnut cultivar that is blight resistant, precocious and an annual bearer. It produces a medium to heavy crop load each year and a large sized nut. Nut drop begins about October 10 and continues for a week period. A high percentage of nuts produced drop during the first 4 weeks of the period that nuts drop from this gulfpbc.com: W. Alfred Dozier, Joseph Daniel Norton, Curtis J. Hansen. Trees will usually develop the blight after years. Unlike the American chestnut tree the Ozark Chinquapin is more resistant to the blight and will live for another five to six years with the blight. They will also continue to produce nuts even though they are blighted.
