Deciduous hardwood nut seeds now available!

We are excited to now offer some new species of tree seeds for sale. This autumn season we have been busy collecting good quality hardwood nut seeds. 

Hickory: Carya cordiformis - Bitternut hickory 

A hardwood deciduous tree native to Ontario and Quebec. Although the seeds are not edible for humans, due to the bitter astringent taste, wildlife species enjoy the nuts. The mature tree produces a heavy, hard wood that is coveted in woodworking.

Ginkgo: Ginkgo biloba - Gingko tree 

An exceptionally unique deciduous tree. Phylogenetically speaking it has more similarities to conifers than deciduous hardwood trees. Its fast growth and tolerance to adverse conditions make it a favourite for city planting in parks and streets around the globe. The seeds are edible and used in specialty dishes.

Red Oak: Quercus rubra - Northern red oak

Once again we have re-stocked a fresh batch of red oak seeds. An old favourite. Check the product page for more details.


 A note regarding shipping for our Japanese customers:

We have now added a shipping zone for Japan distinct from other international destinations. This should provide a reduced shipping cost. Tracking is unfortunately not available for this destination, however that should not effect shipping. Thank you to our Japanese customers for your interest!



    Hello Jerry, Thank you very much for reaching out with this information. In short we’d be very interested to receive a sample of your Red Oak and Black Walnut seeds! Please shoot us an e-mail and we’ll coordinate this at your earliest convivence.


    Hey Fred, thanks for writing in. Presently we do not stock the California sycamore seed. We’re focused on trees native to Canada at this time.


    Hi Erik, thanks for reaching out. No – Hickory is not likely to do well in Saskatchewan. Presently there is no black walnut in stock but we will attempt to restock this for you soon.

    Hello Tree People, My friend Paul Baker in Tatamagouche, NS told me about your business. You have a very good selection and I hope your business is thriving.
    I have been growing trees for many years and have about 4 acres of black walnut that are only about 5 years old but I also have 10 trees that are bearing nuts regularily (unless frost kills the flowers). The source of all my black walnuts originated in Nova Scotia- mostly from Halifax. I started collecting nuts from a huge old tree there in about 1985. I am growing my new trees primarily for wood, so am pruning to get a tall trunk. I do,
    however, get lots of nuts from my older trees. I pot some up to sell and have a nursery for replacements or expaansion of my orchard.
    Paul Baker said you might br interested in buying some of my seed in the future and I would love to sell them to you if you are interested. I also have access to some Red Oak that are good producers if you think You may need more than you. All the black walnuts I have are in cold storage. I dried them out in the fall with plans to crack and harvest the nut meat, but haven’t done that yet. Do you think the nuts would be viable?
    I could send you a sample if you wish, but it may be best to send you fresh seeds next fall instead.

    All the best and let me know if we can do some business together.
