Standard on Northern California Black Walnut Seedling rootstock.

Zones: 4-8

Chill hours: 900

Harvest: October 5 - October 20

Looks: Medium-sized vivid red kernels.

Personality: Highly desired in niche and farmers’ markets.

Facts of note: Laterally fruitful and harvests late with moderate to heavy yield. Leafing of the Livermore variety occurs in mid-April. This variety is a cross of "Howard" and Juglans regia 'Purpurea' developed in 1991. Livermore is noted as a precocious bearer and will often bear fruit in its fourth year.

Pollination: Self-pollinated. For increased yields plant Livermore with Franquette.

European walnuts are the standard of eating walnuts. Good for shade, highly productive. Requires deep watering and well–drained soil. Plant two varieties for best production. Susceptible to blight and root diseases. Can be tricky to grow and are subject to a more limited bareroot guarantee limited to 50% of the purchase price (see page 37 for more details). Trees are 2 years old, and should begin to fruit in their 5th 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.
