I ordered ten of these because they are easier to crack than the wild black walnuts I find around here. Black walnuts are tops in taste and produce excellent timber. I also ordered one of each of your grafted type for the same reason.

Does anyone know how deep to plant a black walnut seedling? The 'crown' is curved above the tap root and I need to know if it remains above soil level or below the soil. I thought the curved crown was suppose to stay above ground, but not sure. PLEASE HELP!
Linda P on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I always plant them below the ground and have had great success doing it. I have some seedlings I planted 15 years ago and they are now at least 20 feet tall.
Is this the type of walnut which is extremely hard to crack open?
Gail D on Mar 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Standard Black Walnuts are indeed very difficult to crack. Not comparable at all to an English Walnut. I have not seen any hand-held cracker that will crack them. It usually takes a hammer or some special compound-action lever-operated cracker.

Excellent
Planted the trees last year and all 10 of them are doing beautifully. I am very satisfied with there trees. Only problem is the local deer must like the taste of them. I have to keep a fence around them till they get bigger or the deer would eat them.

Black Walnut in Ohio Coshocton County
I planted the black walnut seedlings (Stark's) in 2015 on raised beds, on Westmoreland silt loam soil in two locations near the woods applied pelleted lime 19-19-19 fertilizer plus some with compost plus wire for deer. Weed control was Gramoxone. One tree was damaged by Gramoxone and one tree was heavily damaged by deer. This area has either the highest or second highest deer kill in the state. Three trees did not have a four ft.. wire surrounding them. In 2016 weed control and fertilizer will be applied by June 1. I am comparing these newly planted trees to growth from newly cut trees in the fall of 2014.
Over all trees look goof for 2016.
