This week on We Dig Plants Alice and Carmen talk about Chestnuts: the botany and beauty of peasant food. They talk to Sandra L. Anagnostakis, an expert on chestnut blight disease since 1968 and a world-renowned plant pathologist. Together they discuss disease-resistant hybrids and their pros and cons, why you need two trees to get fruit, how China became the biggest producer of chestnuts, and why the chestnut is the only nut to offer Vitamin C. This episode was sponsored by Hearst Ranch: purveyors of fine grass-fed beef from the California coast.
