Walnut Trees (Juglans nigra and regia)
There are no mature walnut trees hereabouts as they were felled mercilessly for their gorgeous wood. They grow very well on our local deep and heavy soil, as you can see from this young tree in our old orchard. The Black Walnut is a native of America, whereas the Common, English, or Persian Walnut is from...Persia. It was probably introduced to Britain by the Romans. Walnuts are delicious eaten fresh, as "wet walnuts", and can be pickled or used to make walnut liqueur if picked green earlier in the season. The trees are self fertile.
