PLACENTIA WALNUTS

Walnut

Chill Hours: 300

Fruit Ripens: September

Placentia Walnuts grow on a large tree (growing up to 40 or 50 feet tall!). They have a mild flavor, with light tan meat that fills out the shell. Walnuts are the oldest tree food known to man, dating back to 7000 B.C. In ancient Persia, they were reserved for royalty. Today, we are lucky to have them at our fingertips- especially if they’re growing in your own backyard. Besides having an array of health benefits, walnuts add flavor, crunch and depth to every course -from savory appetizers, to hearty entrees and desserts.
