Walnut Trees

Stark Bro’s is a great resource for growers interested in planting their own walnut tree. Our selection features both English and black walnut trees and includes three exclusive varieties that you won’t find anywhere else. When you plant one in your yard, it will bring you the best of beauty and productivity. As the tree grows, it will become tall and majestic, making a gorgeous addition to any open space. And it will provide years of large crops of delicious, healthy nuts with a better natural flavor than those you will find in supermarkets — at a fraction of the price! These walnuts are loaded with nutrients and minerals, and they can be enjoyed as snacks, in salads (especially Waldorf salad), or as tasty ingredients in cookies, cakes, breads and more.

Buyer's Guide

To ensure your growing success and satisfaction, there are a few things to consider when you buy a walnut tree.

Zone Compatibility

Your climate plays an important role in whether a tree will produce nuts or even survive. Our walnut trees can be grown in many different climates, including many parts in the North, anywhere in the Midwest, and because of their heat tolerance, most areas in the South and West. Before ordering, make sure your selection’s recommended hardiness zone range includes your area.

Proper Pollination

Most of our walnut trees are self-pollinating, which is ideal if you have limited growing space. If you do have enough room, we always recommend planting another compatible variety for optimum production. For the trees that do require pollination, make sure you check our descriptions to see which pollinating varieties our experts recommend. Inadequate pollination for those varieties can be the reason why they produce poorly or don’t bear nuts at all.

Shipping Information

Most of our walnut trees are shipped to you in our exclusive EZ Start® bottomless pots. These containers allow some roots to be air pruned as they grow out the bottom, so that a dense mass of productive feeder roots can grow within the pot to make transplanting and establishing easier and quicker. These roots also help to accelerate growth rates and induce earlier nuts. When shipped to you, the trees will be approximately 1-2' tall.

Upgrade Option

If you would like a head start on growing one of our walnut trees, some of our varieties are available with an upgrade to one of our Select EZ Start® potted trees. When shipped to you, these larger, top-grade selections will be approximately 3-4' tall.

Promise of Satisfaction

Since 1816, Stark Bro's has promised to please customers with the very best fruit trees and landscaping products, no matter what. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, let us know within a year of delivery and we will send you a free one-time replacement or a refund of the full purchase price.
