Black Walnuts

Juglans nigra
Black Walnut, (Juglans nigra)

Black Walnuts are very common at the PGT in the rich bottomland soils along our creeks. Many nuts are produced every year but I tend not to eat them because they are very hard to open. Another reason I don’t like to work with them is that there are chemicals in the drupes (the outer part of the nut) that stain your hands brown.
