Description:
Can be planted as a nut-bearing landscape tree. Nuts are thin-shelled, easy to open. Tree's crown is rounded, spreading and open. Prefers deep, dry, light loamy soils. Avoid wet or poor subsoil. Grows 40' to 60', 40'-60' spread. (Partially self-fertile, plant multiple trees to ensure pollination) (zones 5-9)

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.
