THERE ARE ONLY 2 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF WHEN CHOOSING A NUT TREE.
1. Do I want to plant a short tree or a tall tree?
2. How many trees can I plant?
The Hazelnut is the only short nut tree and comes in at a mature height of 12 feet. It will make a great hedge if planted in a row and the hazelnut needs 2 trees for pollination purposes.
The Black Walnut, Butternut, Heartnut, and Buartnut are all the tall trees in this group. They will grow into a food producing powerhouse reaching upwards of 50 feet tall. Perfect for any food forest or feature tree. Grow them as close as 10 feet for orchards and 30 feet for the best producing nuts. All these trees pollinate themselves but do extra well with a partner tree for the most nut production. Two of the same type of trees are best!
THIS IS GREAT INFORMATION BUT…WHAT DO THEY TASTE LIKE?
All the nuts have a varying degree of flavors similar to the Walnut. You know the one in the store that you see in the shell. The Black Walnut has a smokey flavour, The heartnut is sweet and yes, the Butternut tastes like butter. Amazing and delcious! And why nut make some roasted hazelnuts and hazelnut butter. Yum!
WHEN WILL I RECIEVE MY TREES?
When you order these trees you are securing them for Spring in 2024. Yes. Buy these trees NOW and receive them when the ground is thawing in the spring. Relax this winter and know that your trees are dormant and sleeping, while being well looked after.
HOW BIG ARE MY TREES?
When your trees get delivered to your door in the spring. You will you have healthy looking sapling trees that are between 2 – 3 feet in height. They will be a dormant bare root plant. Plant the trees in the ground shortly after they arrive.
The plant is asleep and when the soil starts to warm up, the trees then wake up. The buds start showing themselves first then the new leaves start to unfold. You get to watch them grow into high yielding, perennial crop producing, edible plants.
HOW MUCH ARE THEY AND WHAT DO I DO NEXT?
