With a stately look, the gorgeous autumn yellow leaves of the Carpathian Walnut will give your landscape the look of an English countryside. Its rounded crown spreads almost as wide as the tree is tall. Gaining a height of up to 60 feet, the Carpathian will draw the looks that a tree of this stature deserves. When it comes to walnut flavor, the Carpathian is king. An English-type walnut, the taste is full-flavored with a hint of butterscotch and sweetness that is unrivaled by any other variety. The thin husk encasing the fruit is easy to remove. A hearty tree, Carpathians are known to be strong producers that can tolerate harsh northern climates. Use Carpathians to enhance your homemade brownies or top salads with crushed walnuts from your very own tree. Originated in the Carpathian and Himalayan mountain ranges. Carpathian walnuts mature one to four weeks prior to when the hull opens. However, they are usually harvested before this when the seed coat is a light tan color. Nuts can be stored several months at room temperature when dried or for years if frozen. Carpathian walnut flowers from mid-May to early June and flowers occur at the same time foliage is leafing out. Walnuts ripen in September or October and drop from the tree shortly after the leaves fall. Plant with the Cascade Walnut Or Butternut Tree for pollination, also available.
