This cultivar comes to us from France. It produces large red mohagony nuts that fall free from the burr mid to late season. Production is medium but cultivar  produces large quantities of pollen making it an excellent pollinator. One of these trees can provide pollen for trees over 50 meters away. It is also known for its resistance to root rot and chestnut blight.
