Fruitscaping with Black Walnut Trees

Here in the deep south we are not able to grow English walnuts, but instead are blessed with a native walnut known as the Black Walnut. Highly prized for the wood as well as the nuts, Black Walnuts will grow well anywhere pecans will. The trees are stately growers offering good deep shade to laze about under on a hot summer day. The nuts take a hammer to get into but the meat is by far the best flavored of all the nuts. A former employee used to make some great fudge brownies with them, that are to die for, so give it a try! Black walnuts are considered self fertile, but will bear better with another tree planted  near by.

Growing Guide

We do not currently have a growing guide for Black Walnut Trees. We are working on this and will add it in the near future.  Contact us if you have questions on how to plant and nurture your Black Walnuts, and we will be glad to have one of our gardeners assist you.

Shipping Info
Shipping Restrictions

We’re so sorry… but due to agricultural restrictions we cannot ship any plants outside of the United States, or to the states of California, Hawaii and Alaska. Also, citrus trees cannot be shipped outside of the state of Florida.

Here are some important things to know about your shipments

Unpacking Your Plants Guide:  Prior to receiving our plants, please click this link to read our Unpacking Your Plants Guide to get to know the steps to keeping your plant healthy after receiving it.

We do NOT ship bare root:  Our trees are shipped in the same exact containers they are grown in, for the most healthy transition. The plants are watered well before they are packed and wrapped in a shipping bag to ensure they stay moist during transit.  It’s as if you came and picked them up right from our nursery yourself!

Why do we not offer free shipping? At Just Fruits, we price all of our plants online exactly as we do in the nursery. Therefore, the shipping cost is simply what it costs for us to get your order from the nursery to you. Many competitors may increase the plants’ prices in order to hide shipping costs… we do not do that. We want our customers to see exactly what the plant costs are, separate from what the shipping costs are. That way if you decided to come visit the nursery to pick up your plants instead, you would know how much you save in shipping.

Weather Watching:  We now ship all year round! However, we do watch for extreme weather. If there is extremely cold or hot weather expected around your shipment date and on your path of shipment, we will contact you and notify you that we plan to hold the shipment for the next possible shipping date with better conditions. If you ask us to still ship it, through the conditions, we will not be responsible for any damage caused to the plant & UPS will not refund any claims. We love our plants, and do not want to see them die, so we would rather wait until it’s the right time to ship it, than risk losing a plant in transit.
