In the late 1940s, after the MER N DISE disappeared from other places, Julian Chestnuts Autumn is here and in some contrast to a meager crop of apples and pears we have chestnuts in abundance. These are real American chestnuts, not the inferior imports you find in stores. Until the beginning of the 20th century chestnuts dominated forests in the Eastern United States, producing both food and wood. Then, sometime between 1900 and 1908, a fungus was accidentally introduced from East Asia and by 1940 there were virtually no mature chestnut trees left in the country. The discovery of.a large American chestnut in upstate New York in 2006 was exciting enough to warrant a story in the Washington Post. American chestnut had virtually on our place alone there were three in a row, large and lovely and productive. One even had an anvil under it (remember... ."Under the spreading chestnut tree...") until someone stole it for the metal or borrowed it or whatever sometime in the early fifties. An anvil isn't exactly necessary to existence nowadays, but it would be nice to have around. By the time half a century had passed so had our chestnuts but, in the way of nature's miracle, another appeared further down the hill. It is now nearly 30 feet high and produces excellent nuts in very prickly burs. They are sweeter than the imports and, most important, it's easy to take off that inner skin that's bitter on imported chestnuts. . These aren't the only American chestnuts in the Julian area. Fred Slaughter knows of some and Woody Barnes said there used to be a clump of them behind the old Manzanita Ranch apple packing sheds (currently Wynola Farms Marketplace) in Wynola though he doesn't know if they're still there. In any case, Woody has taken some of our chestnuts and will try to grow seedlings from them. There have been letters to tell several foundations and research institutes dealing with the American chestnut about our little biological island up in the mountains of Southern California but no one appears to be nterested. Never matter no mind. There will be chestnuts in the turkey stuffing this Thanksgiving and they will be home-grown Real American chestnuts.
