Butternut Seedlings
Butternut Seedlings
Butternut Seedlings Juglans cinerea 40-60' x same.

Very large impressive rounded shade tree produces edible nuts. Broad open crown, distinctive compound leaves on large arching branches that can hang nearly to the ground. Leafs out relatively late in spring.

Oblong edible nut was used by native people to make oil. Soft young nut can be pickled for eating, and husks yield a yellow-orange dye. Very nice cabinet wood referred to as White Walnut.

Prefers moist rich deep soils but will grow in dry rocky conditions. Give it full sun and plenty of space to reach its full expression. Susceptible to butternut canker, which has devastated many wild specimens. Two old lovely trees are thriving in Belfast, ME. Self-fertile but plant two for more abundant crops. Native New Brunswick to Georgia. Z3. (1-3' bare-root trees)
