Black Walnut (Juglans nigra) seedlings from a mature tree in Missoula, MT.
Produces top-quality furniture-grade lumber, and the nuts are richly-flavored and aromatic. The nuts have flavor overtones reminiscent of our wild mountain huckleberries (Vaccinium membranaceum) - truly a delicacy worth the effort to crack the hard shells.
Black Walnut exudes a chemical (juglone) that is toxic to some plants but not to others, so plan and plant accordingly. Click here to see our list of Black Walnut's friends and foes.
These are 1 year old 1 foot tall bare root Black Walnut seedlings.
