Black Walnut (Juglans Nigra) is a tough tree-In autumn it turns brilliant gold colour. The black walnut is a large, fast growing deciduous tree with distinctive ridged bark and butter yellow autumn leaves. An abundance of edible nuts are produced in autumn,  you probably know when they are ready when you see lots of squirrels in your tree. Nuts are considered to be even better than the Common Walnut (Juglans Regia).
Walnuts are rounded, single-seeded stone fruits of the walnut tree. The walnut fruit is enclosed in a green, leathery, fleshy husk. The husk is inedible but the walnut seeds which are edible are a high density source of nutrients, particularly proteins and essential fatty acids.

In east and central North America the commercially valuable  black walnut tree attains 30 metres in height. This species can usefully be planted in mixture with cherry or larch. In the arboretum it makes a fine free standing specimen in full light. The rugged grey bark resembles oak and the foliage is like ash.

Somewhat surprisingly the humble Walnut is turning out to be perhaps the healthiest of all nuts, thanks to its super-abundance of antioxidants.
