Walnut trees

Walnussbäume

The true walnut tree is Juglans regia, otherwise known as the King of Nuts. In addition to the common walnut, there are many other walnut species, such as the Japanese walnut, Juglans ailantifolia, or the black nut, Juglans nigra.

More useful information about Walnut trees

 Juglans regia, the common walnut, is pretty much considered to be royalty among the fruit trees.  Large, majestic and striking to look at, thanks to the impressive, large leaves, it is surprising that it is such a rare sight in home gardens. The breeding of new varieties of walnuts has progressed strongly in recent decades and in the Lubera online garden shop we are now able to offer a wide variety of common walnut varieties for a wide range of uses - the right walnut tree for every garden.
 

Walnut Varieties in the Lubera Online Garden Shop

We have specifically selected walnut varieties that bear large fruits with thin and easy to crack shells, which taste good and can be stored for a long time. For a classic yield, choose Walnut Franquette, which fruits later; it is robust and also misses the late frosts in the spring. The variety Lange van Lod, which was found about 20 years ago by chance in a garden near Venlo, Netherlands, offers perhaps the world's largest nuts, which can be three times the size of a normal walnut. In contrast to most other large walnuts, Lange van Lod also has a very aromatic and large core. Another very special nut is the red-fruited Walnut Rosette, which has a real wow factor when you eat it and also when used for decorating cakes and puddings.

Finally!!! Small-Growing Walnut Trees

At last there are compact walnut trees that only grow up to 3 to 4 metres and yet have a significantly high yield. Both of our compact varieties, Lara and Europe, bear fruit from the third year on, and these are not only found – as with all classical walnut trees – on the terminal buds, but also on the side branches. As a result, the potential harvests from Lara and Europe is several times higher than for the normal, classic walnut tree varieties.

Buy Only Grafted Walnut Trees

At Lubera, we only offer grafted walnut trees and strongly recommend that you plant only them. Only grafted walnut varieties can guarantee the top quality of the fruit. Seedling plants show great fluctuations and you never know which fruits you can expect in a few years. In addition, the seedling nut trees have a much longer juvenile period than the grafted walnut trees; that is to say, they begin to bear fruit only after 7-12 years, while a grafted walnut tree can bear its first fruits in the 3rd or 4th year.

Winter Protection and Frost Hardiness with Walnut Trees

With their relatively late flowering in May to early June, common walnut trees escape the winter cold, but they can unfortunately be damaged by late spring frosts. In order to prevent this, always choose a location where the cold air can flow well and does not accumulate. A spring-frost damages the fresh shoots and the blossoms, but never the walnut tree itself, which after a short time immediately grows again; however this means that it will bear very few or no fruits. Our walnut varieties in the Lubera online garden shop are winter hardy, meaning that they do not show any problems in a normal winter, with temperatures between - 15 to -18°C. However, freshly planted walnut trees should be protected during the first three years during the winter season by means of insulation material so that the great temperature differences in the winter cannot cause any damage during the intense day sunshine and contrasting cold night temperatures. As soon as the trunk becomes thicker, it is totally winter hardy except in the case of a very unusually cold winter.

Pruning Walnut Trees

Walnut trees do not have to be pruned; they naturally form a beautiful and regularly shaped crown. But if you wish to prune your tree this will not damage it. If walnut tree becomes too big, the best time for pruning it is in the vegetation period (around the longest day); it may be that this will lead to a slightly less harvest, but the tree will heal itself during the active growth period, leading to no diseases. Cuts larger than 7 cm diameter should be applied with a wound protectant.

A Walnut Tree for Almost Every Garden

Overall, the selection of good walnut varieties has become very large – and thanks to the new, small-growing varieties Lara and Europe, a walnut tree can now be integrated much better into a garden. Thanks to our in-house Lubera assortment, we are able to select walnut varieties which offer a high quality of fruit, but they also have other clear benefits such as high yields, gigantic, red-cored and tasty nuts. Therefore there are many reasons to select and buy the right walnut tree for your garden from the Lubera online garden shop...
