Strong beautiful wood used in furniture, paneling and gun stocks.

Winter / Spring
Old French variety with medium-large elongated nuts of good flavor. Especially popular in areas prone to late frost, or blossom rot in springtime, as Franquette English Walnut is very late to break dormancy and start blooming. Somewhat self-fertile, pollinating with Chandler can increase yield. Zone 6-9.
Medium-large, plump, light-colored kernels of very good quality. Well sealed shell, yet easy to crack. Late leafing and flowering to help escape spring frosts. Self fruitful and productive. Grafted onto NC Black Walnut rootstock to give resistance to oak root fungus. Howard English Walnut Tree is small for a walnut, so they can be planted 20 ft. apart. Zone 6-9.
