My property is covered with black walnuts. They have been dropping now for a couple of weeks and they are everywhere. A thundering herd of squirrels could never put a dent in them. I've never had walnut trees before and I'm curious about them. Are they the right variety for eating and are they worth all the work to eat them? If they are, what process do you use to get the hull off of them? Are they then dried and eaten raw? I'm guessing that they are going to be real messy to do with that black stuff inside of the hull. Anyone want walnuts.....come getcha some!
