These are one-year-old seedlings grown by Michael Schimp of Three Acres Permaculture, from seed collected in Southwestern Ontario.

This relative of Black Walnuts (another common name for them is White Walnuts) are native, but fairly scarce, in much of Southwestern Ontario. They are a large growing tree adapted to forest edges, and provide a wonderful eating nut both for wildlife and people. They have become more rare in recent years, and it’s well worth planting them to help our native population of them increase. After decades, they can be harvested for a premium-quality wood that will have woodworkers drooling.

Butternuts grow well with many other plants, but may negatively affect the same types of plants that Black Walnut affects, with the chemical let off by all parts of the tree, juglone.
