I am looking for nut seeds.  Specifically, I am looking for chinese chestnut, chestnut hybrids, and hazelnuts.  Anyone out there with some, or info to locate would be appreciated!

Since OP is zone 7b, and all the species listed are ones found in America, I'll make the assumption this is an inquiry from the US.

For Hazelnuts, you could try this site
The contact info is riverbendhazelnuts(at)gmail.com

Best of luck

I am in SW Arkansas zone 7B.  I am looking for some variety, and in that somewhere between 100 -200 of each.  Want medium to large gourmet type nuts!
Thanks

Didn't think of hazelnuts as growing here but that fellow is in North Dakota, so should be fine in Montana. One of my favorite nuts!

What do chestnuts taste like? I've never had one.

Is there any problem with them hybridizing with horse chestnuts? I ask because I have a horse chestnut tree and of course those are poisonous (tho the dogs think they're delicious and eat a great many of them). And it's already some sort of hybrid, intermediate between a couple wild types. The seeds germinate madly and if it weren't for squirrels, they'd take over the world.
