Black Walnut

Description
Bears up to 30 bushels of nuts once established. Truly a gourmet favorite—black walnuts have a rich flavor prized for baking, plus twice the protein of English walnuts. Trees grow up to 75 ft. tall with dark green foliage, excellent for providing shade. Dark brown wood is strong with an attractive grain, providing valuable timber. Self-pollinating, but plant two or more for top crops.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.
