The Carpathian walnut is native to the Carpathian mountains eastward to Korea, but was brought to Europe through Persia in early history.Carpathian walnut is a more cold hardy strain of English walnut and can be grown further north than English walnut and in climates with more variable winters. Carpathian walnut for the dual purposes of nut and timber production. Late spring frosts in April or early May could cause tip dieback and reduce the crop. Due to the fickle nature of the tree, production can be variable. The nut is large size and well sealed. It should be well filled, without shrivel and with a light golden color.
