Overview

The Black Walnut grows in zones 4-9.
Practicality and aesthetics combine in the black walnut to make this species one of the most treasured trees in American history. The valuable dark brown wood is strong with a handsome grain. And the rich, flavorful nuts are enjoyed fresh and retain their flavor and texture during cooking. Whether you love it more for the stunning wood or the delicious nuts, it is an upstanding tree.

  • Yields a ripened nut crop in early to mid-autumn
  • Begins to bear nuts in 12–15 years
  • Is self-fertile, but plant multiples for a better crop
  • Will be delivered at a height of 2'–3'
