Juglans regia, also known as the Common Walnut, is a deciduous tree revered for its edible nuts and ornamental value. Originating from the regions stretching from South Eastern Europe to the Himalayas, this tree has been cultivated for centuries for both is timber and its favourable, nutritious walnuts.

Mature specimens of Juglans regia can reach impressive heights, often with a broad canopy that provides ample shade. Its bark is smooth and grey when young, gradually developing furrows and ridges as it ages. The trees pinnately compound leaves, compromised of 5-9 leaflets, offer a lush appearance during the season.

One of its standout features is, of course, the walnut itself. A large, round, and corrugated shell encasing the edible nut. These are not only a culinary delicacy, but also a source of beneficial oils and nutrients. Beyond this significance, the Juglans regia timber is prized and very valuable. Its rich, dark hue and durability is often used in fine furniture and woodworking.

In addition to its practical uses, Juglans regia holds aesthetic appeal. Its foliage transitions from fresh green to golden hues in autumn, offering a seasonal spectacle. In landscapes, Juglans regia serves as both a functional and decorative element. Whether grown for its delicious walnuts, valuable timber or ornamental beauty, the Common Walnut continues to captivate and serve all over the world.
