Tolerant in Hot and Cold Climates
The Carpathian Walnut Tree has so much to like:

- Walnut husks naturally ward off pests and insects
- Tremendous tree with awe inspiring canopy
Carpathian Walnut: Impressive looks and Distinctive Walnut Flavor
With a stately look, the gorgeous autumn yellow leaves of the Carpathian Walnut will give your landscape the look of an English countryside. Its rounded crown spreads almost as wide as the tree is tall. Gaining a height of up to 60 feet, the Carpathian will draw the looks that a tree of this stature deserves.
Walnut Taste the Carpathian way
When it comes to walnut flavor, the Carpathian is king. An English-type walnut, the taste is full-flavored with a hint of butterscotch and sweetness that is unrivaled by any other variety. The thin husk encasing the fruit is easy to remove. A hearty tree, Carpathians are known to be strong producers that can tolerate harsh northern climates down to -10F.
Use Carpathians to enhance your homemade brownies or top salads with crushed walnuts from your very own tree. And though they must be planted in pairs or with another English Walnut for fruit, growing Carpathians couldn't be easier.
English Walnut Tree Pollination
English Walnut Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another variety to achieve fruiting.
Planting & Care
The English Walnut tree (Juglans regia 'Carpathian') or “Carpathian walnut” is a fantastic nut producer that brings forth a full flavored, semi-sweet with a hint butterscotch to the taste. This full sun loving, moderately fast growing tree is cold hardy, drought tolerant and shows off a stunning array of color to the fall foliage. Commonly planted in USDA growing zones 5-9 it’s a favorite for cooler states as well as the southern areas for its shade giving properties. Be sure you take into account the tree’s mature height when scouting your planting area as these trees can grow to as tall/wide as 40-60 feet! The English walnut is semi-fertile so walnuts are not guaranteed, it’s best to plant them in pairs to ensure the highest yield.
Seasonal Information: Generally it is best to plant your tree in the early fall, at least six weeks before the first frost in order to give the roots enough time to become established before winter sets in, or in the early spring six weeks after the final frost. However, you can plant your tree at any time of the year as long as your ground isn’t frozen. If you plant during the summer, make sure that your tree(s) get enough water to balance the heat.
Location: When deciding where to plant your walnut trees remember that they will perform best in full sunlight. Although, they can tolerate partial shade as long as they have at least six hours of direct sunlight a day. Avoid planting in an area of your yard that’s prone to flooding, or that collects standing water.
1) Once you have picked the perfect planting location dig a hole that’s just as deep as the root ball on your tree and three times as wide.
2) Take a pitch fork or shovel and scrape it along the sides of the hole to loosen the soil. Check for any debris like rocks, grass, or dirt clumps and remove them from the hole.
3) Next place your tree in the hole and make sure that it’s level with the surrounding ground and standing straight upwards at a 90 degree angle.
4) Slowly back fill the hole and gently tamp the soil down.
5) Once you’ve completed the planting process give your tree a long drink of water and mulch the area to conserve soil moisture.
Watering: We often find that plants are harmed more by over watering than under watering. Keep this in mind when it comes to watering your walnut tree. Allow the soil to dry out two inches below the surface before watering again. Hold a hose next to the base of the trunk and count to 30 order to give them a slow, deep watering.
Fertilization: Give your tree a boost with a well balanced fertilizer like formula 10-10-10 twice a year, once in the early spring and again in the early fall. If your soil is lacking in nutrients you can fertilize up to once a month during the growing season. Wait until your tree has experienced one year of growth before fertilizing.
Weed Control: Prevent weeds from growing under the canopy by spreading 3 to 4 inch thick layer of mulch around the base. The mulch won’t allow weeds to grow, and it will also help your soil retain moisture.
Pruning: Early spring is the best time of year to prune your walnut trees. You’ll want to remove any broken, damaged, or diseased branches. Also, remove any crisscrossing or rubbing branches. Make sure that your tree has sunlight and air flow through the canopy, this will allow the air and sunlight to knock out molds and fungi.
Be sure to look at your tree and plan where to make your cuts. Just like with a haircut, you can always remove more hair later, but if you cut too much it may take a while to grow back. Use a sharp and sterile pair of hand pruners or loppers and make your cuts at 45 degree angles facing upwards in order to promote new growth. You can sterilize your cutting tool(s) with a household rubbing alcohol.

Healthy specimen, very well packaged, speedy delivery.
The placement tree (for the tree damaged in shipping) arrived perfectly and great looking. Now in the ground in my small nut grove. Very happy. Will order other trees for next spring. J. Veverka
With much excitement and gratitude, my experience these past 30 days since receiving my first ever home delivery of walnut trees was remarkable. I had ordered 2 of them to be planted in the front of our Homestead here in North Eastern Tennessee. When they arrived, they came in a tall slender box that showed no sign of damage from the outside. I laid the box down on my front porch and proceeded to open the box. To my amazement, both trees were in the same box. Beautifully placed. These were at least 5 footers and the current growth on both trees was fresh and green. The leaves looked like they were polished and gleaming. Very healthy trees. The base of the roots of each tree were encased with nutritious soil and then wrapped in burlap that would ultimately melt into the soil once planted. The burlap was also in a plastic bag that held the moisture and secured the roots of the trees for the journey to my home. It was very professionally installed in that box. No damage at all to the trees. It has now been almost 2 weeks since both trees have been planted. I am delighted to say that there was no shock to the planting on the homestead and new growth of leaves have already begun! Wow. I will be ordering a couple more nut trees very soon from this company and highly highly recommend you to buy their trees :) I am looking forward to our first ever harvest from these English Walnut Tree in the near future. Sincerely, Wayne Getty "Fruits&Berries a small homestead"
These are some of the largest trees we have ever purchased. Advertised as 3-5 ft, but all were at least 6 ft (and a couple a little taller) and very well developed. We have planted them, and looking forward to getting out own walnut crop!
Both trees arrived on time. One has the new top growth broken, but the rest is doing well. The other is beautiful.
