Our "Native" Black Walnut has been struggling for quite some time from over harvesting for valuable lumber and from under apprecialbilaty-not fitting into the norm, too messy and too big for backyard gardens?
In recent years, climate change has limited the supply of viable nuts due to flash rains knocking off the blossoms before the bees can pollinate them. No pollination, no nuts.
The Great Black Walnut has been selected for valuable timber for furniture, a vermifuge, and protein food staple in famine times, It can also be tapped for Black Walnut syrup much like the Sugar Maple.
The picture we show here are local specimens that we collect from in zone 4, growing in the driest of summers and coldest of winters.
Beware, black walnut trees are allopathic which means they naturally excrete a chemical in their roots that deter other plants from growing close to them. A natural adaptation that ensures its survival from encroaching plant competition.
Walnut has a single long taproot, for best results, plant your walnuts "in situ" which means plant them where the tree will remain for years to come. Plenty of sunlight and space in deep well drained soil. Plant nuts in the fall for natural overwintering stratification.
Nuts are from 2022 harvest and will be shipped late October when they are harvested.
Bulk quantities are available.
