Juglans nigra - Black Walnut


  • A very rarely offered walnut species, native to the Middle East. From late May-early June both female and male flowers appear. The female flowers appear in clusters where as the male flowers droop from the branches on 8-10cm long catkins. In the Autumn, the flowers turn to a green/brown plum-like fruit, this is where you will find a large brown nut. The green/brown coated nuts are very hard to break but the seed is edible on all species, however it has more of a bitter taste than the common walnut. The timber from the tree is very valuable and attractive. With it being naturally strong and durable it is used by craftsmen for high-end furniture around the world. They are extremely fast growers, not too fussy to soil conditions and have good drought and cold tolerance. The older trees develop more of a decorative display, they offer a spectacular yellow Autumn colouration. The large leaves have a special, strong scent. 

  • The plants on offer are strong, unbranched and may be cut back to encourage branching.

  • The intended main use of this plant is to grow food for human consumption. We always recommend further research to learn the different ways in which the food source can be prepared and consumed.
