These short-stem trees withtheir protruding crowns frequently live beyond 100 years. Walnut trees are very demanding. They require agreat deal of care and must be watered carefully to ensure a flawless quality at the point of harvest.

Walnut oil is extracted from the toasted and untoasted kernels of the tree. They have a high oil content and ayellowish hue.
