Quebec native edible nut trees
The black walnut tree is well adjusted to the climate of southern Quebec. It is highly valued for the unique taste of its nuts, the quality and beauty of its wood and its ornamental value. The black walnut tree can live 250 years and reach 30 meters in height. Butternut trees have a shorter lifespan, namely less than 75 years.
Hard shell nuts
Black walnuts and butternuts are known for the hardness of their shell. The breaking step to extract the kernel requires a special nutcracker.
