Korean pine is the best nut producing pine nut pine that grows in the north. The large 4-6” cones produce hundreds of ¾ inch size seeds. Rich in oil, the nuts are delicious eaten raw or roasted.   Grows anywhere white pine can.  Do not prune.

Growth in the first few years is slow, but once established their growth rivals that of their near look-alike, Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus). Many growers put a handful of pine forest soil in the planting hole in order to inoculate the roots with the appropriate mycorrhizal fungi. We find that excellent weed control and adequate water work wonders.  Growth is slow at first.  Patience is a virtue with this crop.  May take 10 years to produce nuts. 

orean pine is the best nut producing pine nut pine that grows in the north. Although thicker shelled than the pinyon, the large 4-6” cones produce hundreds of ¾ inch size seeds. Rich in oil, the nuts are delicious eaten raw or roasted. And yes, they have that piney flavor identical in flavor to the ones you buy in the store. Compared to other species we have tried this tree produces earlier on smaller trees-some only 4-6 ft. tall.  In Korea, even the pollen is gathered for making cookies. Commercially exported in China where the seeds are used in candies. Grows anywhere white pine can.  A few growers report increase yields and growth when inoculating with soil from under native pines. Plant at least two for pollination. Bluish cast foliage. Do not prune. - See more at: https://oikostreecrops.com/products/tree-crops/korean-nut-pine/#sthash.BGdxQr5Z.dpuf
