Walnut, Black (Juglans nigra) tree in a 9-inch-deep pot, Organic
Family: Walnut (Juglandaceae)
Hardy to Zones 4 to 9
Deciduous tree native to Central, Eastern and Southern United States and Canada, flowers unisexual, monoecious, green, inconspicuous. Taprooted tree reaches a height of 75 feet and is quite slow-growing. Excellent shade tree. Traditional usage of the green husk (American Indian, TWM): antifungal, antiparasitic. Black dye plant. Produces large edible nuts. The wood itself is highly prized for instrument making, furniture and turnery. Black walnuts secrete juglone into the surrounding soil which may limit the growth of other plants attempting to grow within the dripline of the tree. Walnut prefers part shade to sun and good water, drainage, and loam, clay-loam, acidic or calcareous soils. Space trees at least 20 feet apart.
