Default pine tree for pine nuts

Hi. My UK seed catalogue offers seeds for a medium sized Korean pine - p. koraiensis - which will produce pine nuts. Would love to hear from anyone with any knowledge of this tree - eg. how high it will grow and how long to produce fruit from seed, assuming UK climate of the south.

According to Mitchell 19M but not particularly good grower in the UK.

You could also consider the parasol pine, pinus pinea. [At least the French
call it the parasol pine, which is much better than the umbrella pine,
particularly as it doesn't keep the rain off.] Grows medium tall and very
parasol-like. It's the distinctively-shaped pine o fparts of the Med, and
the source of the pine-nut of Italian cuisine. I've just got my first
couple of cones afetr about 8 years from planting out small pots.
