Black Walnut Seeds
Economic Investment with Aesthetic, Food and Environmental Benefits
- Curly Frog Farm Black walnut seeds (Juglans Nigra) and trees because of the inherent value of the species, there has been considerable interest in the planting of black walnut. Plantations are established for a variety of reasons, including long-term investments, the establishment of legacies for children or grandchildren, or the enjoyment of planting and tending trees with the recognition of future economic returns. Properly planned and managed, a black walnut plantation can be a sound economic investment while also providing aesthetic and environmental benefits.
- Black walnut is the most valuable individual tree based solely on the dollar value of the wood produced. This is primarily due to the very high value of walnut veneer; but considerable value also exists in walnut saw-timber, as well as the production of nuts.
- Our black walnut seeds stock originated from the University of Purdue developed from selections made for rapid height and diameter growth and good form resulting in a final product with higher quality marketable timber in less time. These results increase the chances for obtaining veneer grade lumber and high-quality trees desirable for landscaping.
- From our own test orchards, we continue improving seed stock selections to serve your growing needs specializing in a variety of growing conditions such as wet soils, frost pockets and fill soils.
- Have wet soils? Ask about our trees adapted to high water tables and flooding.
