The English or Persian Walnut is native to the Balkans in southeast Europe and Asia. In the West Coast states, English Walnuts are grown commercially for their walnuts. These nuts are those you find in grocery stores and other businesses that sell and serve walnuts. The wood of English Walnuts is also highly prized for its timber, commonly used in furniture, gunstocks, and cabinets.
Carpathian is another walnut that works as a dual-purpose tree in landscapes. The rounded, spreading canopy makes a great, shady spot to relax on a hot summer day. Even though this tree is a fast-grower, Carpathian will be one of the last to sprout leaves in the spring; be patient and enjoy the growth of new life. In the middle of fall, you will be pleasantly surprised to see the yearly crop yield ripe and ready for you to pick (and eat)! To ensure that Carpathian grows the best yield, plant another walnut nearby for cross-pollination. If you do not have room for two, Carpathian is self-pollinating and will still produce a smaller yield for you to enjoy.

How to Grow
Carpathian English Walnut is as easy to grow as Black Walnut is. Provide a sunny spot with well-draining soil moist and organically rich, and watch as this tree grows tall. Carpathian does not bode well in hot, humid climates such as in the deep south. English walnuts typically do not produce consistently before 20 years of age; however, some may produce nuts between ages 4-6 in minor crops.
