If you’re looking for the ultimate food forest plant, then a black walnut is essential.
Its the powerhouse of nut trees.
Tall, strong and sturdy. But almost tropical looking. The leaves swaying in a palm tree island, type of way.
Used as a backdrop to your garden, landscape or in an orchard style setting.
Even as your feature tree in the front or backyard. And the best thing it produces edible nuts.
Edible Nuts of course is at the top of the list when describing the black walnut tree.
The tree produces delicious edible nuts each year from around the age of 8.
Not your typical walnut, like the commercial variety found in your local supermarket.
The black walnut has a unique flavour. Smokey, bold, hearty and tasty.
Once you have cracked the nut from the shell, go ahead and eat them raw or in your favourite cake or cookies. Yum!
One of the easiest nuts to pick. They fall from the tree to the ground every autumn. Place them right in your bag or bucket!
Pick up soft green golfball size husks. Some bigger when the weather conditions are right, throughout your growing year.
If you have enough trees producing nuts then selling the nuts can be profitable too.
