Pollen Allergen

Castanea sp.

This group includes the chestnuts (excluding the horse chestnut). The chestnuts are not wind-pollinated, however, sometimes they are found in air samples in high enough numbers that they may cause allergic reactions. The pollination season is June and July. They are found in southern Ontario and southern Quebec.
