Walnut crop guide — 11 Comments

  1. Hi there,
    We have been researching commercial walnut timber plantings in NZ for a few years and have carried out some trial plantings with domestically sourced J.regia, neotropica and regia cultivar’rex’. However we have not found many examples of J.regia planted out by provenance to test performance across sites. If anyone has any experience or knowledge of regia stands in NZ that may produce nuts stuitable for establishment for timber production or is able to suggest suppliers/nursery’s to contact it would be great to hear from you.

  2. I have 2 walnut trees which I think are approx 40 years old that do not have many leaves, same thing happened last year, they grow side by side. also have 100 year old as well, several others and they all seem to be fine, my property is very wet during winter, do you think they have a disease?, thankyou

  3. Is the Levin Area suitable ?
    The soil seems to be mainly Clay.
    Who is selling plants ?
    What is the average cost ?

  4. I live in Maine, USA. I have 5 seedlings started inside the house. We’re heading into our winter season, so I’ll keep them inside for the winter. When should they be transplanted outside? After the last threat of frost in the spring? Will they survive temperatures below freezing?
    Thank you.

  5. I have 2xhundred year old walnut trees that need to be cut down. I am in Piopio in the King country. Would you have any interest in the timber Thanks Dawn

      • Asking around millers and woodturners – would love some wood but logistics, travel, transport, storage circumstances usually overwhelming. But thanks for your offers.

  6. Hi there, I’m looking for a site to plant a a commercial orchard, South Island, possibly Canterbury near Christchurch, but will consider other locations. Will also consider purchase of operating commercial walnut farm, South Island. If anyone has any contacts or wishes to sell land or farm, please contact me at [contact details supplied, please use ‘get-in-touch’ contact form, subject ‘Commercial Walnut’]. This is a private request, no agents please.
