Description

Walnut (Juglans regia) is a large, round headed tree with spreading branches grown principally for its nuts and timber.


Characteristics

The walnut has large pinnate leaves, they are gland dotted and aromatic. Leaves turn from green to a warm buttery yellow in autumn.
The young bark is grey and smooth at first, later deeply furrowed dark bark.

Male and female flowers occur separately on the same tree in June/July. The female flowers are short spikes with a single flower, the male flowers are long catkins (5-15 cm). The female flowers ripen into a single-seeded fruit.

The large fleshy green fruit does not split but rather rots to release the pitted stone (walnut) which encloses a single seed
.


Uses

As well as producing edible nuts, the walnut tree is also prized for its heavy timber. It makes a fine specimen tree and is also effective when planted with cherry and larch. It is good as a woodland tree or planted as an avenue.


Mythology and symbolism

The walnut's botanical name, Juglans, originates in Roman mythology. According to an ancient myth, Jupiter, who was also known as Jove, dined on walnuts when he lived on earth. Therefore Romans called walnuts Jovis glans, meaning 'the glans of Jupiter’.
