Planted 2 Carpathian Walnuts 14 years ago. Have never had a walnut off of either. They are now approx. 20 feet tall. Growth from day-one has been slow but steady. What can I do to improve growth and to get fruit?
Chris W on May 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure if the issue is that your trees aren't blooming to set a nut crop or if it's that squirrels are getting the nuts before you do. However, if the case is that your trees are not growing well or setting a nut crop, especially after this much time has passed, then it may be an issue with the soil where they are planted. I would recommend taking a sample of the soil around those trees and having it tested for any nutrient deficiencies so that you can respond with an appropriate fertilizer treatment. Also, if the soil is very dense, like rocky or heavy clayey soils can be, then it may slow a tree's growth and production.
I am interested in purchasing some Carpathian walnut trees. What is the difference in them and English walnuts ? Also, how do you know when the nuts are ripe and how are they shelled ?
Robert on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am not positive about the difference between English and Carpathian, but it seems like Carpathian are a hartier version of English. The nuts fall from the tree in there hull when ripe and can be collected (you can shake the limbs to expedite the process), you then peel the hull off (which is easy when there green, not so easy after they dry) then they can be cracked just like any other nut. Hope this helps.
what is a good pollinator for Carpathian walnut trees?
ronnie on Feb 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can simply plant two of these or another English grafted variety.
My carpathin walnut at least 10years only had 8 walnuts and each had worms in nut. What should I do?
April P on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's most likely walnut husk fly. You can suppress the presence of this pest with a product like "Bonide?? Captain Jack's??? Deadbug Brew Garden Dust" ??? or reach out to your local county cooperative extension for further advice specific to your area.
Bought 2 a few years ago. 1 survived but I need a pollinator. Any idea where I can find one since you no longer carry them?
Steve L on May 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Any English walnut can be used for pollination, we do carry the walnuts they are just not in stock at this time.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!

Carpathian English Walnut in Wisconsin
I planted my Walnut trees in April of 2016. They were very small, about 10 inches
and about a pencil in thickness. The first season on grew to about 27 inches and
the other to about 18 inches. The difference in size I believe is due to the amount
of sun exposure, one receives about twice as much as the other.

The second season they both have really taken off. As of August 2017 the
tree is now 6 feet, and very bushy, while the shorter is about 3 feet and also
very bushy. On growth alone, I would highly recommend this tree for this
climate (zone 5). I am waiting to see if they produce nuts, Hopefully, they

Would not buy again
I ordered these, and they were a long time getting to me. When they came, they looked dead , but I planted them the way they were suppoesed to be planted, kept them watered, etc. and never saw a green leaf. They were dead when they got to me. I was really disappointed.

Carpathain walnut tree.
I recieved 2 very small trees in fair condition. Planted the trees in well preped soil. The larger of the two trees started growing very good but by the fall lost its leafs and did not come back in the spring. However the smaller of the two trees took longer to set leaf and I thought it was not going to make it. The 2nd tree has come on slow but sure. Leafs came out this spring and is to my surprise is growing well.

Pretty good walnut
I really like the Carpathian English Walnut's that I got. They came with a decent amount of growth and have been putting on about 18" of growth so far and seem very healthy, can't wait to get nuts from them.

Tiny trees. Grew a little last year. Hopefully they will grow more this year

The tree will be a year behind the other tree we planted. Both are alive and hopefully by next year the Carpathian will have leaves on it like the other.
