Add some unique and delicious flavor to your backyard orchard with our 15 black walnut seeds. Black walnuts are a rare and sought-after variety of nut that is native to North America. The nuts have a rich, earthy flavor that is perfect for baking and cooking.
Black walnuts are typically harvested in the fall, when the nuts have fallen from the tree and the green outer husk has turned brown and brittle. The nuts can be collected from the ground and the husks removed by hand or by using a mechanical husker. The nuts can then be shelled and stored for later use.
In order to germinate and grow successfully, black walnut seeds need to undergo a stratification process. This involves exposing the seeds to cold and moist conditions for a period of time, which simulates the natural conditions they would experience in the wild. This process can be done by planting the seeds in a container of moist soil and placing it in the refrigerator for several weeks.
Once the stratification process is complete, the seeds can be planted in a suitable location. Black walnuts prefer well-draining soil and full sun exposure. They can also tolerate partial shade, but they will not grow as well. Black walnuts are hardy in USDA hardiness zones 4-9, so they can be grown in a wide range of climates.
In addition to their delicious flavor, black walnuts are also valued for their beautiful and stately trees. Black walnut trees can grow up to 100 feet tall and have a dark, glossy bark. The trees are also prized for their wood, which is used in high-quality furniture and woodworking. Black walnut wood is known for its durability, color, and grain pattern, making it a sought-after choice for luxury and custom products. Growing black walnuts can be a significant financial investment, and the rewards can be substantial, as the trees can produce a bountiful harvest of nuts and the wood can be sold for a high price.
Our black walnut seeds are carefully selected and packaged to ensure they are of the highest quality. They are easy to plant and care for, and will grow into healthy and productive trees. Black walnut trees can produce up to 60 pounds of nuts per tree and will bear fruit in 8-10 years.
