The culture of nuts is one of the most valuable crops, offering at the same time technical, ornamental and ornamental fruit plants. In order to make walnut cultivation profitable and attractive, we offer you different varieties, more productive and with quality fruit.
The walnut tree is an integral part of our national life and being and to let it wither or to lose it would be to lose ourselves at all three times – past, present and future, it has accompanied our existence throughout the centuries, guarded and ennobled our homes, helped us with food, wood and shade, kept us friendly at baptism, marriage and eternal sleep.
In our company you will find one of the oldest fruit species, with a special economic and social importance, due to the nutritional value of its fruits, the superior quality of its wood, the use of the other organs of the wood (leaf, bark, endocarp, leaflets) as a source of raw material for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry and as a decorative and eco-enhancing species of great effect.
THE VARIETIES WE SELL
The tree is medium vigorous with semi-erect habit. It shows lateral fruiting, earliness and constancy in fruiting. Flowering is late and of the protandrous type. Fruits are ovoid-elliptic, weighing 10-12 g. The stone is of good quality, it represents 48-49 % of the fruit weight, is easy to extract and has a pleasant taste and a light colour. It is currently expanding in France and other walnut-growing countries.
It is the main cultivated variety. The fruit of this already classic walnut variety is considered to be of the highest quality of the terminal fruiting varieties. The tree is vigorous, with a semi-erect habit. Thanks to the late budding and flowering it escapes the danger of late spring frosts. The fruit set is quite early (5-6 years after planting) and ensures constant and relatively abundant yields (2.0-2.5 t/ha).
Fernette® was also developed as a hybrid between Franquette X Lara in 1993 in France and is frost resistant. It is distinguished by its very high pollen count which makes it a very good pollinator for Fernor. Their shells are very hard but easy to open the core is extracted in very good condition. Its average height is 32-36 mm, average diameter 27-32 mm, weight between 11 and 12g. It differs from Fernor by its round shape.
Chandler is a very productive variety. It is a lateral bearer with 90% of its side branches productive. It therefore offers very high productivity. You can start harvesting fruit even 3 years after planting the nut seedlings.Valve suture is good with thin and slightly pronounced suture edge. Their shells are weak and brittle, easily broken by hand and have a slightly wavy surface. Its average height is 38-40 mm, average diameter 32-34 mm, weight between 11 and 13.7 g.
Variety obtained in France. It is currently the main side-fruiting walnut variety used in France for the establishment of intensive fruit fence plantations. The tree is of medium vigour and semi-erect habit. It is an early variety in terms of productivity. The flowering is late, of the protandrous type. Pollinators are Franquette® and Fernor®. The fruit is 11-13 g, the skin is smooth and thin and the kernel has a beautiful appearance representing 49-51% of the weight of the nut.

Walnut is important for obtaining timber, which is considered the best for the furniture industry, obtaining high quality veneer, the automobile industry and luxury canopies and stabilizing the soil by its roots deep in the ground. The walnut tree is excellently suited to growing conditions in Romania;
Requirements for planting
TEMPERATURE, as an essential meteorological element, acts on the planet throughout the year. Walnut grows and fruits satisfactorily only in areas with an average annual temperature of 8-10°C, with warm summers (average temperature of the warmest month 20-22°C), mild winters (average temperature of the coldest month -1°… -3°C). Average annual temperature ranges should not exceed 21-23°C. The literature shows that walnut is more tolerant of high temperatures than low temperatures. For walnut, temperatures above 35°C, accompanied by long dry periods and dryness of the air and soil cause burns on the leaves and leaves, but especially on the fruit. If scorch occurs in June-July, production can be economically compromised.
LIGHT REQUIREMENTS. The common walnut, being native to the sunny lands of Central Asia, is a light-loving tree species. Under low light conditions it records low growth, differentiates few female flowers, production is inadequate, and frost resistance decreases. Insufficient light also favours the evolution of pathogens, which can cause significant damage. It is therefore necessary for walnut in commercial plantations to be planted on slopes with southern or south-eastern exposure. Grown in the countryside, however, north-eastern and north-western exposures can also be used.
WATER REQUIREMENTS. The great variability of the types of walnut trees found in our country, has made this species to be found in different areas starting from the dry ones (350-400 mm annual rainfall), to the foothill regions with rainfall of 900-1000 mm or more. The literature places walnut in the group of species with moderate requirements; it grows and fruits well in areas where annual rainfall amounts to 600-700 l per square metre.
SOIL. The walnut tree has high soil requirements, which makes it grow on a wide range of soils. Intensive planting, however, requires sufficiently rich, light to medium textured soils that are permeable to water and air. Suitable for walnut are heavy, cold, compact, impermeable and poorly fertile clay soils. Although it can grow on these types of soil, growth is slow and the trees are weak and unsuitable. Of particular importance is the subsoil in the growth and development of the walnut tree. It must be sufficiently loose and permeable for the roots, with a high water-holding capacity and sufficient drainage.
SLOPE INCLINATION. On slopes, the walnut tree should be placed in the lower or middle third, where the soils are fertile and well supplied with water. River valleys offer favourable conditions for the growth and fruiting of this species. Steep, sloping, poorly fertile slopes are not recommended, nor are the bottoms of narrow valley slopes where late spring fogs and low temperatures are common.
