Walnut - Common
Common Walnut (Juglans regia)

A deciduous tree growing to 20 m (65ft) by 20 m (65ft) at a medium rate.
It is hardy to zone 5 and is not frost tender. It is in flower in June, and the seeds ripen in October. The flowers are monoecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but both sexes can be found on the same plant) and are pollinated by Wind. The plant is self-fertile.

The kernels are eaten raw or used in confections, cakes, ice cream etc, a delicious flavour.

Requires a deep well-drained loam and a sunny position sheltered from strong winds. Prefers a slightly alkaline heavy loam but succeeds in most soils. The walnut tree is reported to tolerate an annual precipitation of 31 to 147cm, an annual temperature in the range of 7.0 to 21.1°C and a pH in the range of 4.5 to 8.2. The dormant plant is very cold tolerant, tolerating temperatures down to about -27°C without serious damage, but the young spring growth is rather tender and can be damaged by late frosts. Some late-leafing cultivars have been developed, these often avoid damage from spring frosts and can produce a better quality timber tree. The walnut tree is frequently cultivated for its edible seed in temperate zones of the world, there are many named varieties.
