Walnut – Coble Nos 2 – The biggest nut and crop for 2018
This variety fruited for the first time in 2015, every year its crops better. The only problem is sometimes the kernel does not form. But the actual shell size this year is as big as my hand.
Extract from The Society of Ontario Nut Growers
Coble 2- This introduction from Pennsylvania is a very large oval nut, the size of a goose egg. Nuts of this size are usually considered a novelty, because the large size shell is often poorly filled. This selection fills better than most and has a fine sweet flavor even when taken fresh off the tree. It is thin shelled and cracks easily. It is very productive but does have problems with walnut blight and nut fill in some years. It is a protandrous cultivar so it should be paired with ‘Broadview’ or ‘Sejnovo’ for best production. Suited for climate zones 6b-8.
