Juglans nigra - Black Walnut

  • (Please note this plant is prohibited from entering the EU and NI)
  • 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 leaves have now dropped off the plant for Winter.

  • We have excellent quality, 40-50cm tall plants on offer.
