When it comes to growing nut trees, there are two main options: bare root and potted. When choosing a tree, it is important to consider the type of nut you want to grow. For instance, almonds and walnuts require a different climate than chestnuts or hazelnuts.
It is best to plant nut trees in the early spring or late fall. Depending on the type of tree, it may take anywhere from 2-10 years for the tree to reach maturity and begin producing nuts.
When harvesting nuts, it is important to wait until they are fully ripe. For most types of nut trees, this will be in the fall. However, some varieties may be harvested in the summer.
