Is there some type of oak, perhaps a hybrid, that produces large acorns early?

These guys have been breeding oaks for a while:

Bigger acorns, sweeter acorns, more acorns, earlier acorns, acorns on younger trees, acorns without diseases/pests... they're working on all that, so they offer ten cultivars (I think) with varying combinations to suit your preferences.

I've ordered other plants from them and been delighted. They're also local to me, so regularly plug them.
