Black Walnut Tree

Prized for Nuts and Timber

  • Grows up to 75 ft. tall
  • Produces up to 30 bushels of nuts
  • Native to the United States
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. Not available in AZ, CA, WV.

Plants will be shipped at the proper planting time for your area of the country using the shipping timeframes outlined below.
