It grows best in a soil that has good drainage with adequate moisture and the tree prefers sloping, deep soils and soils derived from granite and sandstone; it also does not like shallow or heavy soils with impermeable clay subsoils.

The sweet nuts ripen in the fall of the year and are excellent for roasting or candied. This section ends with the arrest of Anne and the other people in the attic. Chinese-American CxA hybrids have an intermediate level of resistance. Generally, nuts per involucre or bur are present.
