Simcoe Heartnut

'Simcoe' formerly 'Simcoe 8-2' was selected from a planting at the Simcoe Station Experimental Farm. It is a large Valentine heart shaped nut that freely drops out a mixture of whole and half nutmeats. It is an alternate bearer on a two-three year cycle with heavy and lighter crops. It is an early pollinizer so is best matched with late pollinizers. Nuts ripen 2 weeks after 'Imshu'. Suited for climate zones 6b-8.
