Quercus macrocarpa The mighty oak stands 30 meters tall and embodies morale, strength and wisdom. The Bur oak has slightly less tannins than other oaks, making it the preferred choice to use for eating. It still requires processing to remove tannins, but once done, the nuts can be toasted, and/or made into flour and used in baking.

Height including air pruning pot: 20-30 cm one year seedling

Canadian Hardiness Zone: 4

Recommended Use: baking, cooking

Ripens: late September

Pollination: self pollinating

To Order for Spring 2021: orders for spring shipping or pick-up can be placed as early as December. If you wish to reserve anything before that time or have any questions, please email us: sales@silvercreeknursery.ca. We sell only apples and pears bareroot in the fall, as they are most winter hardy. Everything else (as well as apple and pear) is available in spring.
