Description

On the property of The Home Place in Catawba, Virginia, stands a Chinese Chestnut. Since the Chestnut blight fungus (Cryphonectria parasitica) originated from Asia with the Chinese Chestnut, the two species evolved together allowing the Chinese Chestnut to develop a resistance to the fungus.

WIth this observation, I can add the sense of taste. I ate one of the chestnuts. It was delicious!
