Franquette walnutAnother grafted tree, the Franquette walnut is also very popular for backyard growing, not making quite as large a tree as standard varieties, but larger than Chandler, good quality nut with sweet flavour
English Seedling walnut (juglans regia)The English Seedling walnut (juglans regia) usually sports a large nut, with medium sized kernel, same culinary uses as mentioned above. One fellow told me this year of an English Seedling walnut that he planted, with plenty of space around it, which has now reached its full bearing potential, and last season he collected a whopping 200 kilograms (!!!) of walnuts off the one tree. (Also, not sure about the science of it, but anecdotal evidence suggests that cows like to give birth under walnut trees)
Black walnutThe Black walnut is a native American nut, widely grown for the high quality of its hardwood for craftsmen, makes a prized specimen timber -the wood is used to make flooring, furniture and rifle stocks, but also carries a very highly flavoured nut. Oil is pressed from the seeds, they are so rich that usually only a few are eaten at a time. The Black walnut are harder to shell than other varieties -maybe a help in thwarting the birds!
