This Manitoba-selected Manchurian Walnut Hybrid offers a larger nut size and cavity than others, with the earthy Manchurian flavour that is balanced with sweeter notes. Ripe and ready for harvest from mid to late September, these trees will start producing after 10 years. Walnuts hang from clusters of 8 to 15, making them an ideal pick for a home nut orchard, yard site or food forest.
These are seedlings from productive Canadian Prairie (zone 3) sourced trees.
Growers Note: Manchurian walnut trees flourish in loamy, nutrient-dense soil, and thrive when placed in sheltered locations with minimal exposure to winter winds.
The Manchurian Walnut exudes lesser quantities of allelopathic compounds compared to other walnuts, however please choose your planting site wisely as it can inhibit the growth of blueberry, apple tree, crabapple, cotoneaster, azalea, rhododendron, lilac, white birch, larch, mugo pine, red pine, white pine, Norway spruce, silver maple, potato, tomato, pepper and eggplant.
