ShuWater Hybrid Oak: One of Our Favorite Hybrids

shuwater oak

We try not to pick favorites, but it’s really difficult not to favor this winning hybrid. For those of you who appreciate water oaks for their ability to thrive on just about any site and produce super heavy crops, you have to try a few seedlings from this Jumbo acorned cross with the prized Shumard oak. The ShuWater oak parent tree we collect from hasn’t disappointed us in the 7-8 years we’ve been observing it. Every November, it rains these large, white-meated acorns for a couple of weeks until around Thanksgiving.
