Jupiter Walnut

Walnut

Description: Jupiter is a good regular cropper which is early into fruit. Nuts are large with a thin corregated grey-brown shell that ripens at the end of September. The nuts can be picked, dried and stored once they're fully ripe or harvested when they're green during the summer for pickling A healthy tree being late into leaf for frost avoidance.

History: Developed in the Czech Republic in 1971.

Walnut Growing Tips: Prefer to be planted in full sun or light shade with a sheltered position with no frost pockets. Will tolerate many soil types but are happier in light, sandy, well-drained soils. Walnuts are difficult to establish in the first year of planting and some die-back in the shoot tips is expected. For pickling, the nuts are best picked in July before the shells are formed. Test with a pin or skewer! Rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids.
