Grafted Walnut Trees
Why would you buy a grafted walnut tree? Well, they bear nuts quickly - within three or four years. The nuts are big and crops more dependable, and they come into leaf later than many seedlings - i.e. are less susceptible to frost. They can be hardier than seedlings too. Different varieties also have know growing habits, which is helpful if you're using them in a garden environment in particular - and they make handsome specimen trees in a larger garden.
