This very large deciduous tree is a popular nut and lumber tree. There are 21 species of tree in the Juglans genus. The most commonly grown tree for nuts is the English or Persian Walnut. The Carpathian Walnut is a more cold-hardy variety of the English/Persian Walnut, but many people consider them interchangeable. In the United States, the Eastern Black Walnut is a very common tree for nuts, which is prized for its stronger flavor but much more difficult extraction; however, it may be even more valued for its high quality wood from a relatively fast growing tree. Walnuts are great shade trees, great nut producers, and may be considered a wise investment for your children or grandchildren. Read more on walnuts @tcpermaculture
Edible Uses: Seed – eaten raw or used in confections, cakes, ice cream etc. A delicious flavour. The seed can also be ground into a meal and used as a flavouring in sweet and savoury dishes. The unripe fruits are pickled in vinegar. An edible oil is obtained from the seed, it should not be stored for any length of time since it tends to go rancid quickly. The oil has a pleasant flavour and is used in salads or for cooking. The sap is tapped in spring and used to make a sugar. The finely ground shells are used in the stuffing of ‘agnolotti’ pasta. They have also been used as adulterant of spices. The dried green husks contain 2.5 – 5% ascorbic acid (vitamin C) – this can be extracted and used as a vitamin supplement. The leaves are used as a tea. Read more on walnuts @Practical Plants Wiki
