Early Bearing Of Walnuts

Please inform me if young walnut trees grafted on black walnut stock

will produce fruit within 18 months after being planted.

It is true that the French varieties of English walnuts have produced

fruit the second summer of their growth. This does not mean, however,

that you can count upon a crop the second year. These are usually grafts

in nursery rows, and one would have to wait longer, as a rule, for trees

planted out in orchards with a chance to make a freer wood growth. This

is rather fortunate, because it is better to have a larger tree than to

have the growth diverted into bearing a small amount of fruit while the

tree is very young. We do not know any advantage in getting nuts the

second year except it be to see if you really have secured the variety

you desire to produce later.
