Description

Nuttier flavor than supermarket walnuts. Attractive, stately tree provides cooling shade in summer months followed by crops of tasty Persian-type walnuts in the fall. Nuts fall free of husk when ripe. Thin shells crack easily. Bears in 4-5 years. Matures to be 30-40' tall. Heat-tolerant. Ripens in early October. Grafted. Self-pollinating, but you’ll get bigger harvests if pollinated with Stark® Champion™ English walnut. (Juglans regia)

I love walnuts and have fond memories of my grandmother's walnut tree before she passed away. This particular Lake English Walnut had fewer years to maturity compared to the Champion Walnut and is self-pollinating in case my neighbors decide to cut down their walnut tree.

I ordered the Lake English Walnut because of the price and it being "self-pollinating". I wasn't able to locate any in the area.

Are these grafted to black walnut root stocks?
Vincent H on Apr 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they are grafted to black walnut seedling rootstock.
would an American black walnut be a pollinator to lake English walnut?
wantsto know on Sep 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The chances are iffy. You would be much better off with another Carpathian (English) walnut as a pollinator.

Status after 1 year.
I've bought and planted my walnut last fall. It was about 2.5 ft height. This year it added 3+ ft. So far I am very happy with it.

Lake English Walnut planted 2011
I wish I had room for more of these! I chose it because of the self-pollinating feature. Since I planted it in Spring of 2011 this has grown to about fourteen feet high. I allowed plenty of room away from the neighbor's fence and other plantings on our property, because this will be a large and spreading tree. In our area of Ohio we have moderate PH soil with some heavy clay, with occasional rain runoff from neighboring fields causing standing water for brief periods, but has tolerated that well. Our yard gets some damaging winds, and so I staked the young tree. It produced several tasty walnuts last fall, and I am expecting it will produce much more this year. I like to bake, and I like English Walnuts particularly, even adding them to cooked buttered green beans, and topping salads with them. I like to plant things that will feed future caretakers of our property. The Lake English Walnut has grown to be such a handsome young tree.

Great Sapling Care
I purchased my walnut last year - it took off right away with full leaf development and bounced right back again this spring after a late harsh winter season. Great care is taken into account with the stock and it shows ! Thank you.

Twenty Year Old Tree
I bought this tree roughly 20 years ago from Stark Bro's. It grew quickly and started producing nuts after just 3 or 4 years. The nuts are very delicious and it is a heavy producer. We get several bushels of nuts every year, enough to last us all year. It is a beautiful tree. It is currently about 40 feet tall and has a wide spread which has required some pruning to keep it out of the neighbors yard. I have had no pest issues other than walnut husk flies which are easily managed with a July spraying. We do not have a pollinator nearby and yet it produces heavily.

Walnut trees are not budding out
We have been disappointed so far with our Walnut trees, we ordered two. We have watched them closely, cared and watered them but they are not leafing out yet. Everything else is coming along except for a filbert and plum tree we had to replace. Hoping that they are just late bloomers and they will still come out. Stark Brothers Nursery has been very good to work with us and I would certainly recommend them to anyone, they are fair and helpful in all things.

too soon to tell
I bought this tree at the same time I bought and planted a Champion walnut. A neighbor is having very good luck and getting plenty of nuts off older trees -- but this is year two on Lake so time will tell. So far so good.

It has lived
It has lived and growing, slow growing, tendency to die back a bit during some spring frosty mornings.
