The Korean Pine produces the largest of the edible pine nuts.

A native of North Eastern Asia, it has excellent-tasting nuts that are oily, rich and robust in flavour. A slow grower until the roots take hold usually around five years of age. At maturity, the Korean Pine will thrive in full sun but as young seedlings, they require moderate shade. Nut production will start at nine years of age on average but can take up to fifteen years in some cases.

Growers Note: Korean Pine has long been known to have difficulties in transplanting. For best results try planting in well-drained sandy acidic soils. Alternatively, collect soil from locations where pines grow naturally and add it to the planting hole. Our trees have been inoculated to help the tree better adapt to the transplanting process.
