High-grafted Walnuts

What is the advantage of a high-grafted walnut? I am about ready to

plant 10 acres to nuts and do not know whether to purchase Franquette

grafted high on California Black or not.

The advantage of grafting English walnut high on California Black walnut

consists in securing a main trunk for the tree, which is less liable to

sunburn and probably hardier otherwise than is the stem of the English

walnut, and the present disposition toward higher grafting or budding

seems therefore justified and desirable.
