Walnut Tree

March 29, 2010

Our large walnut tree seems to be approaching harvest. Last year at this time we had lost quite a lot of walnuts to blight. This year seems to be doing a bit better. A couple have fallen off with some blight looking symptoms but overall I gather the drier summer has helped minimise blight. I have picked a couple that weren’t quite right as the nut shell itself was very thick.

  1. Walnut still ticking along – has dropped a few walnuts in various stages of ripening. Last year they all came down at once in a big wind. I think the longer they stay on the tree and dry out a bit the better. Some of he ones I have opened have very thick shells – hopefully not a sign of some disease
