Black Walnut - Carpathia
The Carpathian Black Walnut tree, Juglans nigra, 'Carpathian', can be planted as a nut bearing landscape tree. Common names for the Carpathian Black Walnut tree are Persian Walnut, English Walnut, Carpathia Walnut and Madeira Nut.
This deciduous tree bears nuts that are thin-shelled and easy to open. The tree's crown is rounded, spreading and open. The best growth and nut production comes when it is placed in deep, dry, light loamy soils; avoid wet or poor subsoil.
This selection comes from parent trees in central Michigan where trees crop abundantly although winter temperatures plunge to -34' F. It is an excellent shade tree that bears excellent thin shell English Walnuts; nuts are thin-shelled, easy to open.
This walnut tree will begin to produce nuts in 5 to 7 years if planted on a good site and is cared for; nuts ripen in October. Carpathia Black Walnut trees are self-pollinating but they will normally do better with another neighboring Black Walnut.
