A popular tree for its dual role of food and shade provider. The flavorful walnuts are easy to shell and a favorite for eating fresh and baking. It is a fast-growing, stately tree with strong, sturdy branches that form a spreading crown for dense shade. This cultivar is well adapted for cold climates.
The thin shell of the Carpathian walnut makes the kernel more available to wildlife that the harder shelled native black walnut.
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.
Pinnately compound, alternate, 5-9 leaflets, 2"-5" long, medium to dark green.
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.
Can be planted as a nut-bearing landscape tree. Nuts are thin-shelled, easy to crack. Tree's crown is rounded, spreading and open. Prefers deep, dry, light loamy soils. Avoid wet or poor subsoil. Grows 40' to 60', with a 40'-60' spread. (Self-fertile, but require wind for pollination; plant more than one tree to ensure crop or better crop). (Zones 5-9)

The benefits of bare-root trees
Our trees are delivered with natural bare roots which have been dipped in hydrating gel prior to shipment to keep the roots moist and healthy. As their abundant, fibrous roots aren't confined by a container, bare-root trees get off to a more vigorous start compared to containerized roots which typically need more time to adjust to transplanting. Bare-root trees typically surpass the size of larger containerized trees in only a few years.
