Large and starchy with a distinctly smooth flavor. Boil, bake, or roast them on an open fire. The tree itself is deciduous, with large, serrated leaves; grey bark; and a grand, stately appearance. The nut comes in an interesting, spiky hull. Trees are 2 years old, and should begin to fruit in their 5th-7th year.
Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Almond, Mulberry, Walnut, Persimmon, and Jujube -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
