What type of Walnut tree is this?
« on: July 11, 2019, 01:39:49 PM »
Yes, I see now that I posted this in the wrong board.   ;D    Should have put it in Tree and Plant ID.   ::)

I have a 60 foot walnut tree in my yard that has more walnuts on it than we've seen since buying the property 5 1/2 years ago.   The limbs are sagging from the weight and a storm last week dropped one limb with several hundred walnuts on it.   These walnuts are not round like the black walnuts I'm familiar with.   They are more "lemon" shaped and I am not sure what type they are.   Possibly English Walnut, or even "Butternut?   They are in clusters of 2 to 6 walnuts and are 2 to 2 1/2 inches in length.

Looks exactly like the black walnut tree I am standing under right now.

In the first pic, the long leaf on the left appears to have the terminal leaflet aborted, which is a diagnostic characteristic of Juglans nigra, our American Black Walnut. In this leaf pic on this website, you can see that the terminal leaflet is missing.

If in fact your walnut leaves have the terminal leaflet aborted, it is certainly our regular ole native black walnut.

Hmm, I think it's about the time to make pickled walnuts or nochino if you want to thin em out.
