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 1 to 3 foot tall bare root Black Walnut seedlings are grown in air-pruner beds, so they form fibrous, many-branched root systems.
