Default Dunstan Chestnut tree

Has anyone got some Dunstan chestnut trees for spring planting ? I got 6 more this spring that is a total of 26 trees around my land now.

I've been thinking about getting those. Have they started producing yet and how hardy have they been?

They seem to be hardy. They have been growing fast. Maybe to fast. I like to see the lower trunk of the trees get bigger around. Last year trees some have already started to produce nuts. I don't know if that's a good thing or not for such young trees. They are only 6-7feet tall
