    Hello everyone. Just wondering where I can buy a stone pine or any pine producing edible nuts. Thanks! (I meant Pinus pinea).

    Both Pinus pinea and Pinus koraensis (Korean Nut Pine) produce good nuts; most of the pine nuts commercially available nowadays come from the Korean pine.

    Google "JL Hudson Seeds", he sells seeds of both varieties; they germinate fairly fast in the spring.

    Bear in mind the mature height, though: these are not small trees.

    If space is a concern you might try pinyon pines instead.
