In pot: 40-60 cm

Geographic origins: Europe.
Adult dimensions: Height up to 25 meters, width up to 20 meters.
Foliage: Deciduous.
Soil type: Slightly acidic to limestone, light and rich.
Climate: Hardy up to -20°C. Sensitive to spring frosts.
Exposure: Full light.


Properties and uses:
The fleshy fruits with green pulp of the walnut are dehiscent when ripe. It is the core of the fruit, the nut, which is edible, particularly in pies or salads. The nuts are collected by digging at the end of October. The envelope contains a dye used in carpentry. Its wood is highly sought after in cabinetmaking. The walnut is generally planted alone.
Many varieties and cultivars have been developed for fruit growing to improve yields.
We thus find the 'Franquette', the most widespread variety, producing large, hard-shelled nuts, fresh in August-September. This variety is very interesting because even young plants can produce nuts.
'Parisienne' is also a widespread variety. Its production is quite late (mid-October). The nuts it produces are large and round, with a soft shell and very fine, fragrant flesh. Finally, this variety is not very sensitive to bacteriosis.
