Wanted a smaller tree for zone 5a. Had heard and read about Domoto trees. This is listed as a Domoto cultivar - so we'll give it a try.

Much snow surrounding this tree right now but it is still flexible and very much alive. It is well mulched but not otherwise wrapped or protected. this cold winter.l Want more of these as soon as available this spring.

Doing fine
Have had this in the ground and all is well. Plant arrived happy and healthy and is doing well through this Spring. The one (another variety of English Walnut) I put in last year is also doing well. Had to cage them as the deer will browse and horn them. Hopefully in a few years it will be bearing well. Just like my other trees from Stark.

Grew an amazing amount the first year!
We planted this tree a year ago and it had amazing growth the first year. It's starting to get leaves now and we're looking forward to more growth this year and in a few more years, walnuts!

Zone 4b Grower
Planted 3 Stark Northerns in Spring 2016 here in zone 4B. All three made it through the winter, though one is definitely struggling. Our winter was actually warmer than usual, with a below average snow fall. We'll see how they do this year.

So far I would give them a B to a B+ for growth and hardiness. I'm worried a really bad winter might do them in.

Nice tree, but leaves cannot stand 30 degree weather.
The tree has been growing nicely but we had an early frost, 30 degrees. I had hoped that since this tree is supposed to be OK in growing zone 4 that the leaves would stand a light frost. Not so, the leaves did not survive the 30 degree weather. Oh well.
