To study the influence of different leaf-to-husk ratios to the yield, fruit quality (starch, soluble sugars, proteins and fats.) and carbohydrate in different organs (foliages, stems, cupules and ovaries) of Chinese chestnut (Castanea mollissima Bl) trees, 3 levels were set up with different leaf-to-husk ratios, which was 5:1, 10:1 and 15:1. The results indicated that the contents of fructose, glucose, inositol, sucrose, xylose, arabinose and sum of individual sugars, differed significantly among different organs of the different treatments. The leaf-to-husk ratios of 15:1 had the higher yield, higher total soluble sugar, starch and protein and lower fat concentrations. Low leaf-to-husk ratio influenced the accumulation of starch and the development of the ovary of Chinese chestnut.
