Wildlife Value

The thin shell of the Carpathian walnut makes the kernel more available to wildlife that the harder shelled native black walnut.

History/Lore/Use

The word walnut is a derivative of the "Gaul nut." Gaul, the former name for France, was one of the places to which this Persian tree spread at the end of the Ice Age.

Leaves

Pinnately compound, alternate, 5-9 leaflets, 2"-5" long, medium to dark green.

Bloom Time

Late spring

Fruit Description

A round, fleshy green husk in clusters of 3-9 encloses a hard, thin 1 1/2"-2" shell with a rich, flavorful kernel. At maturity the husk opens and releases the walnut which falls to the ground. Harvest in late September to mid-October. Walnut trees grown from seed will take about 8-10 years to begin producing nuts.
