Black Walnut - Northwestern (sdlg.)
Without question, our nut trees are far hardier than those offered by any other nursery in the country. Our Black Walnut seedlings are from parent trees planted by Fred Ashworth during his decades of breeding for hardiness, timber quality, and cracking quality of nuts. We collect seed from a few exceptional local parent trees which meet our standards. Black walnuts yield beautiful, dark-grained lumber, as well as the rare and delicious nuts (which can retail for over $15/lb).
Northwestern: These seedlings are hardy, uniform growers. The parent produces a very reliable annual crop of small nuts.
