Black Walnut
Patterson Pride Plum

The Black Walnut is a slow growing, large, straight-stemmed tree with an open crown. It produces dense, very hard, edible nuts.

Black Walnut has a deeply-furrowed, black bark. Its leaves are about 1 foot long, composed of 15 - 23 slightly stalked leaflets on a moderately stout stock which provide good dappled shade.

Despite being highly valued for its edible nuts and its shade tree aesthetics, it is rare to see this tree on the prairies.

Note: Black Walnut's roots produce a substance named juglone that is toxic to some other plants. Consider this when choosing where you plant a black walnut, as you will not be able to grow tomato, potato, cabbage, eggplant, blueberry, azalea, rhododendron, lilac, red pine and apple in the surrounding area.

Note: plant this tree once. It will not respond well to transplanting.

Note: Although self-pollinating, planting two trees significantly improves nut production.

Patterson Pride Plum is a fruit tree with weeping branches. This hybrid plant needs a wild plum tree for cross pollination before it can produce fruit. Patterson Pride's fruit is much larger and sweeter than other hardy plums, excellent for fresh eating, baking, jamming, and drying. A healthy tree grow ripe fruit in late summer and will not drop any fruit on the ground.
We recommend pairing Patterson Pride with Pembina Plum as these varieties cross pollinate well with each other.
