It’s easy to assume that England is the homeland of the English walnut tree (Juglans regia), but that’s actually not the case at all. To arrive at their true place of origin, we must travel 3,858 miles southeast of England… all the way to Iran. Persia, to be exact. This popular nut tree has exceptional lumber that’s been used for delicate woodworking, furniture, even gunstocks. The nuts from this fast-growing tree are thin-shelled, making them easy to crack open and eat. This, and their delicate flavor, is a large reason why English walnuts make up almost all commercially grown walnuts in the United States. The English walnut tree itself is quite pretty, with a round, spreading shape that provides dense shade from the summer sun. The hardiest of the English walnut trees are Carpathian walnuts, which came over to America in the early 1900’s.
